Social Work Research in Practice
Ethical and Political Contexts

Second Edition


November 2013 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This new edition of Social Work Research in Practice: Ethical and Political Contexts explores the intrinsic connection between knowledge, research and practice in social work. The authors argue that through a better appreciation of research, the highest standards of social work can be achieved.

 

The second edition investigates contemporary approaches which impact on the discourses of social work research, including:

 

- Evidence-based practice

- User-led research

- Anti-oppressive practice

- Practice-based research

 

Each chapter has been fully updated with a rich range of case examples and references. Further reading is also included, so that readers can expand their knowledge.

This book is a valuable resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners working in the field of social work.

Heather D'Cruz works as a Consultant: Research and Professional Education.

Martyn Jones is Associate Dean at RMIT University.
