Social Work Research and Evaluation : Examined Practice for Action (Paperback) (Elizabeth Depoy &
About this item
Social Work Research Methods and Examined Practice integrates the full range of research methods into the model of Examined Practice which helps students understand why research methods and evaluation are critical to good practice. Examined Practice is not just a framework to guide social workers in conducting evaluation and research. Rather, it is a logical, systematic model to guide all professional thinking and action within a context of purpose and what is practical in everyday social work practice. Examined Practice reminds us to begin at the beginning, at the point of identifying values about what our practices should change, what is needed to achieve the change that we want to see, to look critically at our own activity, and to examine the extent to which, and how, social work produced the change. Examined Practice bridges the practice–research separation. The framework embraces diverse theories, action, and sets of evidence from a range of professional and disciplinary perspectives.
