The Social Work Student's Research Handbook is a complement to the dense and heavy research books available that cover a lot of material -- and have the pages to prove it. It helps you sort through the narrative, details, and examples to get straight to the heart of each issue when it counts. It provides the tools to get through the learning process and is an essential aid for reference use with professional literature; for selecting a problem for social work study; identifying a design type; developing or selecting an instrument; developing a sampling strategy; collecting and analyzing data; and organizing, writing, disseminating, and utilizing results. The Social Work Student's Research Handbook includes concise, usable information on problem formulation; working from questions or hypotheses; assumptions; design options (exploratory, descriptive, experimental); evaluations (practice, program); data analysis (qualitative, quantitative); and much more. Each chapter ends with a summary of major points to remember and a self-test exercise.Dominique Moyse Steinberg is the author of 'The Social Work Student's Research Handbook', published 2004 under ISBN 9780789014818 and ISBN 0789014815.
