Description - Science and Social Work by Stuart A. Kirk
Historically, there have been two main approaches to the proper role and function of science in social work: making practice more like research by emphasizing the systematic gathering of information, and the intense study of individual clients, and arriving at decisions after analysis of case-specific data; and using scientific findings in working with clients. This book presents a balanced appraisal, demonstrating how the fruits of scientific research can aid clinical practice.
