Description: Presenting the methods of social science research within the context of human service practice, the Sixth Edition of APPLIED SOCIAL RESEARCH serves as an excellent text for courses emphasizing applied research in human services, counseling, social work, sociology, criminal justice, and community planning. In this revised edition, the authors show research and human service practice as allies bound by common goals of advancing knowledge and creating a better world. Covering the full range of topics included in traditional social science research methods courses, the book devotes considerable attention to both qualitative and quantitative research methods. 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.
