Practitioners as Rule Using Analysts: A Further Development of Process Knowledge in Social Work

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Social work research has gathered a greater transparency and clarity of identity in North American and parts of Europe. Furthermore, the rapid emergence of social work research in other European countries, China, India, Japan and elsewhere in Asia and Pacific Rim countries, and gradually in South America, has created a need for a collection that can contribute to both shaping and making accessible key and sometimes hard-to-access sources.This four-volume collection answers this need, bringing together key literature in a single resource and structuring it into thematic volumes to enable clear understanding of the different aspects involved in the research. Vol. I. Historical trajectories, purposes and key concepts -- vol. II. Decisions about research strategy -- vol. III. The practice of social work research -- vol. IV. The contexts of social work research.
The chapter is in Volume 3: The Practice of Social Work Research.
