"In the second edition of Practising Social Work, the authors will continue the first edition's focus on helping social work undergrad and grad students understand and learn about research methods using case-based, real world problem solving. In preparing the second edition, the authors have provided four new case studies that examine mixed methods research with First Nations and children's participation post separation. Also, a new section teaches students how to choose what kinds of statistics to use for specific levels of measurement. In addition, the authors have updated the references for each case study and highlighted the major learning outcomes while continuing to focus on the real world application of research to social work practice."-- Provided by publisher
