This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the nature of social work research. It clearly demonstrates how research-mindedness is key to improving individual and collective social work practice, helping practitioners to effectively navigate the complex issues they face on a daily basis. The book considers research in relation to a number of important social work themes, including ethics, anti-oppressive practice, service user research, evidence-based practice and interdisciplinary work. The book will help readers: critically reflect on their own social work practice; assess, appraise and apply research; effectively advocate on behalf of service-users; confidently engage in debates about the profession; and reflect on legislative and policy developments.

Understanding Social Work Research is clear and accessible, containing reflective questions and practice examples illustrating the links between research and social work practice. This book will be essential reading for all social work trainees, and will provide invaluable support for graduate students and practitioners wishing to consolidate their understanding of social work research.
