9781412968928: The Practice of Research in Social Work

Like the first edition of The Practice of Research in Social Work, this Second Edition introduces research methods as an integrated set of techniques for investigating social work research and practice problems.

This Second Edition continues to offer the most contemporary treatments of the latest developments in social work research approaches. Interesting and contemporary social work examples are used, with each chapter focusing on a particular substantive research question. Students gain new insights into important substantive issues as they learn about the strong and weak points of actual research projects.

About the Author:

Rafael J. Engel, Ph.D, is Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the School of Social Work, University of Pittsburgh. He has authored journal articles on such topics as poverty in later life, welfare benefits, and depressive symptomatology and he has written a variety of monographs reporting agency-based evaluations. His research experience includes funded research studies on faith-based organizations and employment in late life as well as funded evaluation research studies on welfare to work programs and drug and alcohol prevention programs.


Russell K. Schutt, Ph.D., is Professor of Sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and Lecturer on Sociology in the Department of Psychiatry (Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center) at the Harvard Medical School. He completed his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. (1977) degrees at the University of Illinois at Chicago and was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Sociology of Social Control Training Program at Yale University (1977–1979). In addition to Investigating the Social World: The Process and Practice of Research, now in its 6th edition, Making Sense of the Social World (with Dan Chambliss), and adaptations for the fields of social work (with Ray Engel) and criminology/criminal justice (with Ronet Bachman), he is the author of Organization in a Changing Environment, coeditor of The Organizational Response to Social Problems, and coauthor of Responding to the Homeless: Policy and Practice. He has authored and coauthored numerous journal articles, book chapters, and research reports on homelessness, service preferences and satisfaction, mental health, organizations, law, and teaching research methods. His recent funded research experience includes a National Cancer Institute-funded study of community health workers and recruitment for cancer clinical trials, a large translational research project for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Women’s Health Network, a National Institute of Mental Health-funded study of housing alternatives for homeless persons diagnosed with severe mental illness, and evaluations of case management programs in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and in the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. His publications in peer-reviewed journals range in focus from the effect of social context on cognition, satisfaction and functioning to the service preferences of homeless persons and service personnel, the admission practices of craft unions, and the social factors in legal decisions.

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
