This textbook guides students, step-by-step through the process of conducting a student research project--conducting a literature review, conceptualizing a research question, designing a research project, collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data, as well as disseminating results to academic and lay audiences. The textbook emphasizes ethics, cultural humility, social justice, information literacy, and feasibility as core components of the research process.
Graduate Social Work Research Methods
In order to both educate social work graduate students on the importance of research in the field and to better prepare them to conduct that research, Dr. DeCarlo and his team developed a complete package of materials for graduate classes in social work. This package will include a textbook, ancillary materials, and a student workbook.
