Social Work Research and Evaluation: Foundations of Evidence-based Practice
Oxford University Press Inc
Richard M. Grinnell
Refined with input from students and instructors who used the previous seven editions, the authors have updated, rearranged, and added to the latest edition of this popular textbook. Nevertheless, the audience of this edition remains the same: advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate social work students in a one-semester research methods course. With the addition of four chapters on evidence-based social work, the editors emphasize how important that approach has become, and they provide a foundation for understanding how to do evidence-based practice with comprehensive explanations of both qualitative and quantitative research approaches. The authors have aimed to make this edition less expensive, more aesthetically pleasing, and much more useful than ever before. A straightforward, user-friendly introduction to social work research methods couched within the positivist and interpretive traditions--the two approaches most commonly used to generate relevant social work knowledge--it is sure to maintain and enhance its renown as a premier text for research methods courses, one that students like to use and professors like to teach, and that produces highly capable and professional social workers.
