Description: This accessible book is based on the author's extensive practical experience of carrying out and teaching research in the social work field. Social work research is shown to be both a distinctive academic enterprise and a task that can be accomplished effectively in line with the values and ethical principles that lie at the discipline's core.
Synopsis: 'This book offers many practical examples of research projects taken from the author's own experience as a researcher. These examples illustrate the usually complex concepts of research methodology by showing how they are practised in the real world of social work, so the title is apt. Especially useful are the common features of social work research discussed at length in the final chapter, as a way of finding common ground in the disputed terrain of social work as a profession, and in social work research in particular' - Heather D'Cruz, School of Health and Social Development, Deakin University, Australia. This accessible book is based on the author's extensive practical experience of carrying out and teaching research in the social work field. Social work research is shown to be both a distinctive academic enterprise and a task that can be accomplished effectively in line with the values and ethical principles that lie at the discipline's core. "Doing Social Work Research" helps intending researchers to relate 'methodology' to 'method', so that they can make authoritative decisions about how to turn initial research questions into valid and feasible investigative strategies.In doing so, it introduces and evaluates a wide range of approaches across the spectrum of social work research. Building on this, the book provides detailed guidance on how to organize the research task, paying close attention to the practicalities of planning, preparation, implementation and management of investigations. "Doing Social Work Research" features: a comprehensive overview of social work research methods; detailed guidance on 'how to' carry out research in social work; illustrative examples of research practice from personal experience; and effective links between core social work values, purposes, methodologies and research practices. This book is a valuable resource for social work students and practitioners carrying out research projects as well as practicing researchers and research educators in the discipline.
