Very often research texts for social work students are dry, boring, and hard for students to relate to. Not this book. Nor do authors Judy L. Krysik and Jerry Finn shy away from teaching research skills that are actually interesting and useful to students interested in real-life social work practice. See Chapter 13 on writing in this book, for example, as well as Chapter 6 on qualitative research methods. Go to www.routledgesw.com/research to learn more. Five unique cases on the web teach students how to apply research issues and skills to a variety of different levels of social work intervention, and clients. See especially the new case RAINN based on the evaluation of a national hotline for rape and sexual abuse: This case focuses on research and ethical issues related to program evaluation.
