Research Made Simple
A Handbook for Social Workers
Social Research Methods | Social Work Research Methods
The full range of methods employed in social science research courses is presented in this practical `how to' guide for the social services. Topics discussed include basic concepts about scientific method, fundamental terms, and the research process from initiation through implementation to completion. Qualitative techniques, programme evaluation, statistical hypothesis testing, computer applications, ethical principles, gender and diversity issues are covered in this comprehensive handbook, giving readers a basic foundation for understanding and doing research.
I like the way that this author presents the material in a simpler way than other texts. This is great for beginning social work students. I also like the definitions included in each chapter.
