From the Publisher:
In this thoroughly revised and updated version, Hugh McLaughlin offers an accessible and authoritative guide to the nature of social work research. With a new introduction and the inclusion of up to date case studies, the book clearly demonstrates how research-mindedness is key to improving social work practice.
Containing case examples, reflective questions and chapter summaries the book takes a student-friendly approach throughout. National and international contexts are reviewed to demonstrate best practice in social work decision making.
The Second Edition considers research in relation to a number of important social work themes, including ethics, anti-oppressive practice, service user research, evidence-based practice and interprofessional work. The book will help readers: critically reflect on their own social work practice; assess, appraise and apply research; effectively advocate on behalf of service-users; confidently engage in debates about the profession; and reflect on legislative and policy developments.
Understanding Social Work Research is a clear and accessible guide to the subject. The book will provide invaluable support to undergraduates, graduates and practitioners working in the field of social work.
