about

The required research sequence is perhaps the most dreaded element of a BSW or MSW program for students who don't see the applicability of research methods and data analysis to the "real world" of practice. With the move toward greater accountability and evidence-informed practice, though,students must be well equipped to be not only consumers but producers of research. Increase student research comfort and competency with the Social Work Research Skills Workbook, a hands-on practical guide that shows students how to apply what they learn about research methods and analysis to theresearch projects that they develop in their internships, field placements or employment settings.At once a survival guide to the research requirement and a toolbox that practitioners can use in the field, this workbook promises to engage students in the research process and make them responsible, ethical, and informed producers of social work knowledge that produces better outcomes for theiragencies and clients.
