The authors are social work instructors who understand the realities of social work practice and have included many social work practice examples. The book is ideal for readers with little or no prior knowledge of research. This edition infuses content in three major areas. First, qualitative research methods are discussed and appropriate examples are offered throughout the book. Secondly, research to evaluate practice, while still the focus of the last two chapters, is discussed alongside research for building a professional knowledge base at many points throughout the book. Third, discussion of ethical issues appears throughout. It receives special emphasis in the discussions of program evaluations and single system research. For social workers who need an introduction to research methods.
