Review:

"Providing a bridge between research and practice, this text for undergraduate and advanced students in the health and human services helps readers develop their clinical intuition to inform research, thinking, and action. Early chapters cover philosophical foundations and offer guidelines on reviewing the literature and formulating research questions. Design approaches are then described, covering both experimental-type designs and naturalistic inquiry designs, and practical actions are explained, such as setting the boundaries of a study, collecting info, and statistical analysis. Stories from the authors' own research practice demonstrate how to improve practice through inquiry. This fourth edition contains new material on ethics and informed consent documentation, and a new chapter on seeking financial support for research ideas, plus practical hints for getting started writing a research proposal. A student website offers background on statistics, web links, sample forms, and reference lists linked to PubMed abstracts. DePoy teaches interdisciplinary disabilities studies and social work at the University of Maine. Gitlin teaches occupational therapy at Thomas Jefferson University."
