Practice research partnerships in social work can make a significant difference to social work service delivery. Through clear multinational practice scenarios, critical questions, and examples from research, Christa Fouché guides researchers, students, educators, practice managers, funders, and practitioners in exploring partnerships that can create, contribute, consume, commission, or critique evidence in and for social work practice. The text encourages collaborative practice by demonstrating the transformative power of knowledge networks in making a difference in social work on a practical level. This comprehensive, accessibly written book will be an essential text for both students and practitioners, helping them to engage actively with research through their front line work.
