9780205011216: Research Methods for Social Work: Being Producers and Consumers of Research (Updated Edition) (2nd Edition) (Connecting Core Competencies)

With its practical and accessible writing style, Research Methods for Social  Workers, 2/e, offers numerous examples from the field of social work and emphasizes how research and social work practice are connected. CSWE-mandated areas of social work are emphasized.

 

With over 25 years of teaching research and social work practice course, the author understands first-hand how practice and research are connected and how vital they are to each other.

 

Each chapter reflects and integrates the core competencies in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).  End-of-chapter assessment reinforces this integration, and MySocialWorkLab.com activities support the mastery of CSWE's core competencies.
