Summary

Fundamentals of Social Work Research is a briefer, but thoroughly re-worked version of the Engel and Schutt's The Practice of Research in Social Work 2e which will provide an engaging text for introductory social work research classes. The Practice of Research in Social Work introduced research methods as an integrated set of techniques to investigate social work practice methods and problems. The brief edition will continue to integrate substantive practice-related examples with research techniques, present ethical decision making as a part of every aspect of the research design process, and infuse content on diversity and populations at risk throughout the text. The format is appropriate for courses in social work research methods which are one quarter or one semester in length. Congratulations to esteemed author Russell Schutt, 2007 recipient of University of Massachusetts, Boston's Chancellor's Award for Distinguished Service!
