This clearly written, easy-to-understand book demystifies the research process and provides a rational foundation from which to critique and understand research designs and applications in health care and human service settings. Divided into five parts - Introduction, Thinking Processes, Design Approaches, Action Processes, and Improving Practice Through Inquiry - it explores multiple research strategies, proposing that naturalistic and experimental-type research strategies have equal value and contribute in complementary and distinct ways to the science of practice. Content in this edition has been significantly expanded and updated to reflect changes in the field, specifically in areas of ethics, informed consent, practice efficacy, and proposal-writing.Key terms, chapter outlines, and exercise ideas in each chapter strengthen understanding of important concepts.Detailed discussions of qualitative and quantitative methodologies offer a unique, balanced focus and comprehensive coverage of research.Specific design strategies for experimental, naturalistic, and mixed method enable readers to compare, contrast, and integrate different designs.Understandable, down-to-earth writing style makes the information more accessible and relevant.3 new chapters comprehensively address patient boundaries, sharing research knowledge, and practice efficacy.A new appendix provides informed consent documents for use in the practice setting.New and expanded content added to chapters reflects emerging practices and hot-button issues such as ethical considerations, practical considerations, new naturalistic inquiry designs, and more.More case examples interspersed throughout the text are identified with new magnifying-glass icons to alert readers to research dilemmas or potential problems they might encounter.

Presenting the methods of social science research within the context of human service practice, the Fourth Edition of Applied Social Research is ideal for courses emphasizing applied research in sociology, social work, criminal justice, counseling, and community planning. Used at the undergraduate and graduate levels, this popular text explores the growing diversity of ways in which research is applied to practice and the extensive links between research and practice. Features: * Emphasizes integration of practice and research. * "Research in Practice" boxes in each chapter discuss special examples of ways in which research and practice have been linked. * Chapter 11 covers single-subject designs, an often neglected topic in texts not designed for the human services marketing. * Each chapter concludes with Main Points, Important Terms for Review, For Further Reading, and Exercises for Class Discussion. Where applicable, some chapters contain "Computers in Research" and "Exploring the Internet" features. New to this edition: * The coverage of data analysis is now expanded into two chapters (now Chapters 14 and 15). * An increased emphasis on the use of computers in research and a new focus on World Wide Web resources, including "Exploring the Internet". * A new appendix on the World Wide Web Connection. * Integration of qualitative and quantitative methods in applied settings.
