"The purpose of this book is to teach social work students the concepts and skills needed to apply research methods in their practice with clients. Within the last three decades, the human service professions have been challenged to base practice on empirical evidence. One promising approach to meeting this challenge is to train practitioners who can evaluate knowledge produced in the behavioral sciences and, then, translate such knowledge into practice principles. This volume aims to help practitioners under¬stand the research process and equip them with the necessary tools and skills to: (a) evaluate studies; (b) translate relevant behavioral sci¬ence knowledge into practice principles; and (c) implement evaluation procedures in their daily practice. The book also provides guidance in incorporating evidence-based practice principals and procedures into social work curricula. Evidence-based practice offers practitioners and students a method for building into the intervention process a problem-solving and evaluative component that is greatly needed in social work"--Provided by publisher.
