The Social Work Student's Research Handbook, Paperback / softback Book


This second edition of The Social Work Student's Research Handbook provides an essential guide for social work students beginning to participate in research.

Practical and easy to use, this comprehensive handbook provides instant access to the nuts and bolts of social work research.

Each chapter in this second edition has been updated to reflect the dynamic and changing nature of social work research, and three new topical chapters have been included that offer new food for thought on research context and ethics and on the role of evidence in professional practice. The book is intended as a resource to complement the dense and heavy research books available.

This text provides the tools students need to fully engage with their research and is an essential reference aid for use alongside professional literature for selecting a problem for social work study with consideration of context and ethics; identifying a design type; developing or selecting an instrument; developing a sampling strategy; collecting and analyzing data; and organizing, writing, disseminating, and utilizing results in a politically sensitive way. The Social Work Student's Research Handbook is an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate social work students as well as practitioners new to the field as they apply what they've learned in research courses toward consuming research effectively, implementing original research projects, and ultimately, toward becoming an evidence-based practitioner.
