A very user-friendly text, esp at pre-qualifying levels.
Making students aware of the importance for a systematic and scientific perspective on social work attitudes and interventions
This is essential reading for social workers and social students contemplating and embarking on research and research reviews. It reviews and examines critical issues and approaches in an accessible way with many examples of social work related research.
Very contemporary and relevant to social work practice in particular in a culture where such a text and practice itself is so important. Clearly set out and accessible for students.
Useful supportive text for research students in this field
This book has been recommended for a postgraduate course undertaken by professional social workers. It is particularly useful for individuals who are not necessarily actively undertaking research but want to understand both its relevance and how its quality can be assessed. The text is well laid out and accompanied by very useful case studies and research summaries.
This book is pitched at exactly the right level for my second year social work students so will become a core text. I would have liked to see some discussion about the contested nature of evidence-based practice and a brief mention of research philosophy with an outline of different epistemological positions, but aside from these minor improvements, this book is an excellent resource.
A good starter book for apprentice researchers
Succinct focused and very well written with up to the minute insights on key issues. Excellent book.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
