about this item

This textbook on research in social work guides students in critiquing research and using research methods to evaluate practice. It explains the process of research, ethical and scientific guidelines, measurement, sampling, causation and research design, group experimental designs, single-subject design, survey research, qualitative methods and data analysis, mixed methods, evaluation research, quantitative data analysis, and reporting research. It integrates content on ethics, diverse populations, and evidence-based practice in each chapter. This edition has new examples, research, and expanded material on technology and qualitative methods, community-based participatory research, ethnomethodology, and conversation analysis, as well as coverage of emerging research techniques like ethical issues and internet research, expanded material on the use of electronic surveys and cell phones, and qualitative methods like online interviewing and netnography. It has more emphasis on secondary data analysis; reorganization and expansion of the information on mixed methods; more on implications for evidence-based practice; new vignettes about research in the popular press; new and updated studies of homelessness, poverty, domestic violence, aging, and other social issues; and new appendices on questions to ask when reading a qualitative research article.
