An accessible introduction to research methods specifically needed in social work and social welfare, this text outlines the major stages of research projects, covering both quantitative and qualitative methods. It offers explanations of how to combine these two traditions in practice, as well as guidelines to analyzing results and reporting. It also includes chapters on needs assessment and evaluation - skills essential for human service workers. Written for researchers without a strong maths background, the text is accompanied by exercises and examples. The book should be a useful introduction for newcomers to research, and a reference for more experienced social workers who would like to improve their skills.
