Evaluation for Social Workers
This book has been written with an eye on the realities prevailing in social work and the human services field. Pressure for accountability has never been greater, resources are being reduced while expectations for quality and effectiveness are rising. There is wide-spread interest in the field in evaluation which is increasingly viewed as a key means of meeting accountability requirements . Under current circumstances, professionals at various levels within the organization are assuming a greater role in designing and implementing evaluation and quality improvement systems. The underlying theme of this book is that social workers and other human service workers can easily use evaluation procedures to improve the quality of their practice and programs. This book aims at providing a conceptual understanding of evaluation practice and also at providing the basic knowledge and skills required to understand and contribute to an organization's quality improvement efforts. This book is for social workers, but can also be used by anyone in the human service fields.
