Evaluating in Practice

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Social Science - 184 pages
Evaluation is not a self-contained phase of social work practice - one more dimension of the process - but a dimension of every phase. In this fully rewritten and updated second edition of his groundbreaking text Evaluating in Practice, Ian Shaw demonstrates how evaluation and inquiry are just as much practice tasks as planning, intervention and review. By demonstrating that good evaluating in practice helps sustain a commitment to evidence, understanding and justice Shaw shows that for this to be achieved, evaluating in practice must permeate every aspect of social work.
