Research Methods in Social Work
Cognella Active Learning
is available with this title.
Readers learn how research can inform them about the effectiveness of interventions, how data can influence policy, and how enhanced measurement of client problems and program evaluation can influence the course of programs and agencies. Specific topics include ethical thinking and research, developing questionnaires and instruments for action research, using Excel for single system research designs and statistical procedures, and techniques for selecting client and community samples. Each chapter includes self-review questions to prompt reflection and anxiety checks that help students assess their responses to what they are learning.
Research Methods in Social Work successfully makes the case for using research methods in social work practice, prepares students to be informed consumers of research, and gives them the tools to evaluate their own practices and programs.
