This new edition of Social Work Research in Practice: Ethical and Political Contexts explores the intrinsic connection between knowledge, research and practice in social work. The authors argue that through a better appreciation of research, the highest standards of social work can be achieved.

 


The second edition investigates contemporary approaches which impact on the discourses of social work research, including:


 


- Evidence-based practice


- User-led research


- Anti-oppressive practice


- Practice-based research


 


Each chapter has been fully updated with a rich range of case examples and references. Further reading is also included, so that readers can expand their knowledge.


This book is a valuable resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as practitioners working in the field of social work.
