Qualitative Methods in Social Work Research
The Second Edition of Qualitative Methods in Social Work Research provides accessible how-to instruction for social work and other practice-based researchers interested in carrying out rigorous and relevant qualitative research.
This comprehensive, expanded version offers a sophisticated introduction to qualitative methods based upon six major approaches: ethnography, grounded theory, case study, narrative, phenomenological, and participatory action research.
Similar to the earlier edition, this Second Edition is a highly readable introduction to qualitative research that combines attention to methodological rigor with pragmatic concerns for real-world relevance.
New to the Second Edition:
" offers guidelines for writing a qualitative methods proposal
" emphasizes community-based and cross-cultural research
" presents case illustrations of exemplary qualitative studies, with several drawn from the author's qualitative study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health
" provides an expanded discussion of the paradigm debates in qualitative inquiry
" gives detailed instructions on coding and thematic development.

Dear Author, this is an excellent book that speaks about the mixed-method very "to the point". I will use this book as a reference in my doctoral dissertation with a tribe in Arizona. Thanks to the publisher for printing this invaluable text. As a graduate student I can't afford to have it as my own, but definitely I will talk about it with my co-students, friends and professors here at the University of Arizona in Anthropology Dept. and College of Public Health.
My rating for this book is 4.5 out 5, because I was not able to get some of the pages in the google scholar!
Thank you. Sincerely, Zeenat
