First published in 1998, this is the first definitive text on single-case evaluation in Britain. This is a method of evaluation research which enables progress to be determined by comparing different phases in the life of a single client, group or system. It can also determine the extent to which the social worker’s intervention was responsible for the changes in the client’s target problem. Examples are provided from British experience.


’…the best textbook yet appearing in Great Britain dealing with single-case research designs…Should be required reading for all social workers looking for practical ways to empirically evaluate their own practice. A wonderful portrayal of the creative adaptation of a few simple research principles into routine social services.’ Bruce Thyer, School of Social Work, University of Georgia ’…a clear and well written account of various case evaluation strategies which are directly relevant to practice…this is an excellent book which should be essential reading for anyone connected with social work.’ Cognitive Behavioural Social Work Review
