About the Book

Distinctive in its emphasis on research as a natural corollary to practice, the book takes readers step-by-step through the process of developing a practical agenda for such projects. Fortune and Reid clearly explain how to formulate questions and hypotheses conduct group and single-system naturalistic and experimental designs, analyze and compile data, and write research reports. Along the way, they present lucid discussions of the critical theoretical considerations, such as how to gauge reliability and validity and perform qualitative and quantitative data analysis. Throughout, they furnish specific methodological advice for integrating research agendas into everyday practice. Research in Social Work is a peerless companion to coursework in basic research methodology and clinical research at all academic levels - indeed, it is one of the few books broad enough in coverage to serve as a primary text for a wide spectrum of classes.
About the Author: Anne E. Fortune is professor of Social Welfare and director of the undergraduate program at the State University of New York, Albany.
