CAIRO BOOKS's Description
When social workers draw on experience, theory, or data in order to develop
new strategies or enhance existing ones, they are conducting intervention
research. This relatively new field involves program design, implementation,
and evaluation and requires a theory-based, systematic approach. Intervention
Research presents such a framework.
The five-step strategy described in this brief but thorough book ushers the
reader from an idea's germination through the process of writing a treatment

This innovative pocket guide will serve as a solid reference for those already
in the field, as well as help the next generation of social workers develop
skills to contribute to the evolving field of intervention research.
