Apply knowledge from the latest research to urgent social problems and programs

Cutting-Edge Social Policy Research is a careful selection of the finest papers from the 2004 Social Policy Conference held in Charleston, South Carolina. These presentations from respected experts spotlight the latest and best research on a wide variety of crucial social policy issues. Explanations are provided on how to use qualitative and quantitative methods to research social policy questions, with a clear view on how to apply research results to today's social problems and programs.

Cutting-Edge Social Policy Research discusses various social policy topics, approaches, and the latest high-quality research and findings. Students learn how others have researched the topics using different approaches, while practitioners gain important new information relevant to their jobs and practice areas. Chapters explore vital perspectives, such as how to link program evaluation to policy practice, how clients' "in their own voices" views bring more convincing rationale to policymakers, and how the "trauma perspective" can spotlight the true effects of poverty, inequality, and oppression in our society. The text includes extensive up-to-date bibliographies and literature reviews.

Topics in Cutting-Edge Social Policy Research include:
measuring program implementation to differentiate between theories that don't work and programs that aren't effective
inclusion of qualitative methods into research in social policy
the latest quality-of-life research for the elderly in nursing homes
effective intervention practices for deaf and hard of hearing children susceptible to abuse
in-depth analysis of the eight variables of the Section 8 Housing Program policy process
trauma theory and its application to poverty policy
the impact of work incentive policies
examination of state and local governments granting large tax breaks to corporations and the implications for social welfare practitioners

Cutting-Edge Social Policy Research is stimulating, insightful reading for practitioners, educators, and students in social policy, social work, sociology, and political science.
