Evaluation and Social Work Practice free pdf Evaluation and Social Work Practice offers a comprehensive treatment of the central issues confronting evaluation in social work that links theory and method to practical applications. Evaluation is an integral part of social work and social care provision, for both practice and service delivery. Evaluation can improve effectiveness and increase accountability and help develop new models of practice and service delivery. The authors argue that evaluation should not just be applied to practice but should be a direct dimension of practice. Appealing to the student, researcher and practitioner, Evaluation and Social Work Practice will become the standard reference source on evaluation in social work.

About Ian Shaw

Ian Shaw took an undergraduate degree in sociology at the time when the discipline was expanding rapidly in Western countries. He worked as a Probation Officer for a few years before moving to Cardiff University and much later to the University of York. He has - happily for him - never lost the nagging challenges that a social science agenda brings. He has had published perhaps seventy papers in peer reviewed journals, written or edited about twenty books, and completed about fifty chapters for collections. He led the development of the European Conference for Social Work Research and was the first chair of the European Social Work Research Association until 2015. He initiated the international journal Qualitative Social Work. The rather mis-titled Evaluating in Practice (Ashgate) is, he suspects, the most original argument he has accomplished. 2014 saw the publication of his first extended research methods text, Doing Qualitative Research in Social Work (Sage. With Sally Holland). His Social Work Science (2016. Columbia University Press) is perhaps the most demanding manuscript he has tackled thus far. A four-volume 'Major Work' on Social Work Research (Sage 2015. With Jeanne Marsh and Mark Hardy) consists of 67 papers that they think are in the first rank of importance from any period in social work. Much of his recent work builds on a sabbatical to undertake a historical study of the relationship of social work and sociology, which took him to the University of Chicago in 2011. His garden, cooking, Dylan and a very good church take as much time as he can give. Professor Joyce Lishman is now retired, and was previously Head of the School of Applied Social Studies, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK. She was also General Editor of the Research Highlights in Social Work series for many years.
