This practical guide is written for social workers who need to learn how to integrate research into their work to determine whether maintenance, prevention or change goals in their practice are being achieved. A fundamental issue in such evaluation is that of measurement. Measurement in Direct Social Work Practice emphasizes the conceptualization and use of measurement concepts and principles in relationship to decisions routinely made in various phases of direct practice -- assessment, planning interventions, implementing intervention, and termination and follow-up. The book provides important basic knowledge for advanced students and professionals who wish to increase their research skills for practice in social work, counselling, clinical psychology, and related mental health fields.
