Om boka

The Routledge Handbook of Social Work Practice Research is the first international handbook to focus on practice research for social work. Bringing together leading scholars in the field from Europe, the USA and the Asia Pacific region, it provides an up-to-the minute overview of the latest thinking in practice research whilst also providing practical advice on how to undertake practice research in the field.





It is divided into five sections:




State of the art
Methodologies
Pedagogies
Applications
Expanding the frontiers








The range of topics discussed will enhance student development as well as increase the capacity of practitioners to conduct research; develop coordinating and leadership roles; and liaise with multiple stakeholders who will strengthen the context base for practice research.





As such, this handbook will be essential reading for all social work students, practitioners and academics as well as those working in other health and social care settings.
