Social work students need to understand the relationship between research, knowledge and practice to be effective practitioners.

In the second edition of this highly regarded book, Hugh McLaughlin shows how a research-minded perspective and an appreciation of evidence-based practice can lead students to achieve the highest level of individual and collective social work practice.

Topics covered include:

- How to assess, appraise and apply research

- The philosophy of research

- Improving the use of research in practice

- Interdisciplinary contributions to social work and social work research

Providing reflexive questions, practice examples and suggested reading throughout, this book is essential reading for all undergraduate students of social work. It will also be valuable reading for postgraduates and qualified social workers wishing to consolidate their understanding of social work research.
