Using an integrated case study approach, the book begins with the underlying logic of single-case (and its relations to applied behaviour analysis) designs, specific design strategies and tactics, data presentation and interpretation, and the general advantages of single-subject research for those working in applied settings - particularly courses in psychology, social work, counseling and therapy, nursing, and related human services and allied health sciences.
