Principles of evidence-based practice come alive through illustrations of actual social work research in this Second Edition of Rafael J. Engel and Russell K. Schutt’s innovative The Practice of Research in Social Work. The authors introduce research methods as an integrated set of techniques for investigating the problems encountered in social work, directly linking each topic to issues associated with ethics, diversity, and evidence-based practice. Enabling students to critically evaluate research literature and develop the skills to engage in research and practice evaluation, the book emphasizes methods of particular concern in social work research and devotes chapters to group, survey, single subject, and qualitative designs.

Review:

"The co-authors bring expertise from social work and sociology, fields that share an interest in the "science" of the social sciences along with attention to real-world problems and solutions. The thirteen concise chapters are thoughtfully structured [and] the text provides a comprehensive overview of social sciences research with numerous examples from social work. A main strength of the book is the clarity with which the authors present complex topics." (Edward Cohen 2009-03-04)
