Very often research texts for social work students are dry, boring, and hard for students to relate to. Not this book. Nor do authors Judy L. Krysik and Jerry Finn shy away from teaching research skills that are actually interesting and useful to students interested in real-life social work practice. See Chapter 13 on writing in this book, for example, as well as Chapter 6 on qualitative research methods. Go to www.routledgesw.com/research to learn more. Five unique cases on the web teach students how to apply research issues and skills to a variety of different levels of social work intervention, and clients. See especially the new case RAINN based on the evaluation of a national hotline for rape and sexual abuse: This case focuses on research and ethical issues related to program evaluation.

Review:

Research for Effective Social Work Practice is the best methods textbook that I have ever used in the classroom. My students find the examples in the book extremely relevant and relatable. The accessibility of the language makes it fun and interesting to read. Yes, I said fun! My students have responded to this research text like no other.

-- Karen Gerdes, Social Work, Arizona State University

I applaud the authors in their continuing efforts to improve an already excellent product. The text is well organized with numerous examples that assist students to be competent researchers and research consumers. It is a one of the few texts that provides information on both qualitative and quantitative research in a clear and engaging manner. I highly recommend the book!

--Glenn Stone, Social Work, Ball State University

This text provides an important framework for research faculty and students. All of the essential elements for preparing students to become informed consumers of contemporary research are provided in this one work, and the connection to practice is evident every step of the way.

--Jody Brook, Social Welfare, University of Kansas
