Evaluating Practice continues to be the most comprehensive practice evaluation text available. Focusing on single-system designs, Evaluating Practice, 5/e, presents clear guidelines on conceptualizing and measuring problems, using practice-oriented evaluation designs, and understanding and analyzing resulting client data. Ethical guidelines for practice evaluation are infused throughout. Evaluating Practice was written for students and practitioners in all of the human services, including social work, psychology, counseling, nursing, and psychiatry.

Evaluating Practice comes with a free CD-ROM featuring numerous programs, including the unique and innovative SINGWIN program for analyzing single-system design data (created by Charles Auerbach, David Schnall, and Heidi Heft Laporte of Yeshiva University); the CASS and CAAP programs for managing cases and scoring scales (created by Walter Hudson); and a NEW set of Microsoft Excel Workbooks and interactive exercises.
