Social Work Research for Social Justice by Beth Humphries

Students of social work need to understand the contribution of research, as part of this evidence base, to effective practice. This textbook introduces students to a range of research methods at a practical level and sensitises them to the political dimension of research.


'There is a clarity of both expression and intention throughout the chapters, which enables the reader to easily engage with the principle themes and aims of the volume.' - Julia Warrener, Senior Lecturer Social Work, University of Hertfordshire, British Journal of Social Work'
