Intended for graduate students in psychology and social work, this text reprints 20 articles published in peer-reviewed journals, followed by commentary written by one of the study authors that provides deeper background information on sampling methods, research settings, problems with human subjects committees, issues with funding sources, and the need for statistical analyses responsive to missing data. The studies illustrate the practical challenges of conducting human service experiments, correlational designs, and qualitative methods. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
