Research Methods for Social Work
Widely considered the best text for the course, RESEARCH METHODS FOR SOCIAL WORK, Seventh Edition strikes an optimal balance of quantitative and qualitative research techniques--illustrating how the two methods complement one another. Allen Rubin and Earl R. Babbie’s classic bestseller is acclaimed for its depth and breadth of coverage as well as the authors’ clear and often humorous writing style. Combining a rigorous and comprehensive presentation of all aspects of the research endeavor with a thoroughly reader-friendly approach helps students overcome the fear-factor often associated with this course. Relevant examples from real-world settings consistently help students see the connections between research and social work practice. In response to the move toward teaching evidence-based practice throughout the curriculum, the new edition also enhances coverage of evidence-based practice as well as keeps the text in line with other accreditation requirements based on the recently revised EPAS guidelines. Comprehensive, friendly, accurate, and integrating the best of technology, RESEARCH METHODS FOR SOCIAL WORK, 7e is an excellent text that can be used across undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels of study.
