Abstract

Social Work students often find research an intimidating and complex area of study, with many struggling to understand the core concepts and their application to practice. This book presents these concepts in an accessible and user-friendly way. Key skills and methods such as literature reviews, interviews, and
questionnaires are explored in detail while the underlying ethical reasons for doing good research underpin the text.
