Thoroughly revised and updated, the chapters offer a wealth of new research examples and references, accessible diagrams of essential concepts and processes, and extended coverage of core social work research methods and recent developments. For example, with the inclusion of four new chapters on the evidence-based approach to social work practice, the book emphasizes how important this approach has become, and provides a rock-solid foundation for understanding how to evaluate and interpret research findings that have been derived from research studies-the minimal skills needed for evidence-based social work practitioners.
