EVALUATION IN THE HUMAN SERVICES is a straightforward introduction designed to be used as the primary text in introductory evaluation courses, case management courses, and applied research courses in social work and other related human service programs. It can also be used as a supplementary text in practice methods and administration courses that emphasize accountability. It focuses on the core content that students need in order to understand and appreciate the role of evaluation in professional social work practice. The book prepares students to participate in evaluative activities, become critical producers and consumers of professional evaluative literature, and develop a solid foundation for more advanced courses. Because organizations and practitioners are increasingly required to document the effect of their services not only at the program level, but also at the case level, the book emphasizes monitoring, which can easily be incorporated in the ongoing activities of the practitioner and the agency.Andrade, Lydia is the author of 'Evaluation in the Human Services' with ISBN 9780875814445 and ISBN 0875814441.
