Promotional Information

This is an ideal book for the many social work students and practitioners who are interested in better understanding the rather complex issues involved in clinical research. The book is extremely readable, well organized, current, practical, and interspersed with excellent examples from typical practice. It covers a very wide range of methodologies, but manages to explain each in clear terms that will resonate with practitioners and students alike. It recognizes the practical realities of managed care, the importance of evidence based practice (EBP), and the potential problems inherent in this type of research. -- Lambert Maguire, associate dean, University of Pittsburgh
