Publisher Comments:

Presenting social science research methods within the context of human service practice, APPLIED SOCIAL RESEARCH is the ideal text for courses focused on applied research in human services, counseling, social work, sociology, criminal justice, and community planning. With in-depth coverage of all the topics taught in traditional social science research methods courses, APPLIED SOCIAL RESEARCH brings the subject to life by showing how research is increasingly used in practice today. In addition, this Eighth Edition includes a thought-provoking Eye on Ethics feature, enhanced coverage of evidence-based practice, and a stronger connection between research and human services policy.

Synopsis:

You may be wondering why you need to study research methods to prepare yourself for a career in human services. This accessible text will help you to better understand the connection between human service research and practice. APPLIED SOCIAL RESEARCH brings the subject to life and explores the most recent technology innovations, including how cell phones, PDAs and computers are affecting research methods and results.
