Description
Going beyond the "how to" approach of many textbooks to underscore the assumptions and biases that guide all scholarly investigation, this volume integrates a range of research techniques into a single epistemological framework and presents a balanced approach to the teaching of research methods in the "helping professions". Jeane W. Anastas begins with a discussion of the different philosophical perspectives within which social research occurs and continues with problem formulation, research design, and methodological issues influencing data collection, analysis, and dissemination. She presents both fixed (quantitative) and flexible (qualitative) methods of research, granting legitimacy, value, utility, and relevance to both styles of inquiry.

Utilizing complete case studies to illustrate different methodological approaches, Anastas integrates material on women and people of color, and draws attention to the ways racism, heterosexism, sexism, and classism affect the conceptualization and conduct of research. Anastas not only exposes these biases but actively addresses the experiences, needs, and concerns of clients of both genders and different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, cultures, and classes.
