During the twenty-first century, social workers will increasingly use evidence-based knowledge to plan, implement, and evaluate the quality of their own professional activities; this book helps students develop the skills needed for evidence-based social work (EBSW). This book emphasizes the importance of applied practice, critical thinking, and self-directed, lifelong learning. Students learn the fundamentals of the EBSW skills, practice them to establish beginning proficiency, and then apply them to a target client group of their choosing. Students will learn to search for, discover, critically analyze, and apply evidence of what works in service to clients.

Dr. Cournoyer has been a social work practitioner for more than 40 years and a university teacher for more than 35 years. He received his M.S.S.W. degree from the University of Tennessee and the D.S.W. degree from the University of Utah. He is Emeritus Professor at the Indiana University School of Social Work, where he taught social work practice courses. A former Associate Dean with the School, he remains interested in student learning assessment and quality improvement activities in social work education. In addition to this sixth edition of THE SOCIAL WORK SKILLS WORKBOOK, he co-authored THE SOCIAL WORK PORTFOLIO and the Seventh Edition of SOCIAL WORK PROCESSES--all published by Brooks/Cole.
