Appraising and Using Social Research in the Human Services: An Introduction for Social Work and Health Professionals

Synopsis

"Michael Sheppard uses case examples from practice to demonstrate how research messages can be applied in a range of situations, from developing social services for ethnic minority groups to working with a individual suffering from mental illness. Each chapter includes exercises and questions to test the reader's understanding of key concepts, as well as examples of research articles for guided discussion. Appraising and Using Social Research in the Human Services is both a core textbook for social work and health care undergraduates and a useful resource for all trainers, practitioners, service managers and postqualifying students in health and social care."
