What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Research for Effective Social Work Practice is the best methods textbook that I have ever used in the classroom. My students find the examples in the book extremely relevant and relatable. The accessibility of the language makes it fun and interesting to read. Yes, I said fun! My students have responded to this research text like no other.

— Karen Gerdes, Social Work, Arizona State University

I applaud the authors in their continuing efforts to improve an already excellent product. The text is well organized with numerous examples that assist students to be competent researchers and research consumers. It is a one of the few texts that provides information on both qualitative and quantitative research in a clear and engaging manner. I highly recommend the book!

—Glenn Stone, Social Work, Ball State University

This text provides an important framework for research faculty and students. All of the essential elements for preparing students to become informed consumers of contemporary research are provided in this one work, and the connection to practice is evident every step of the way.

—Jody Brook, Social Welfare, University of Kansas
