In this workshop, we will explore methods for combining qualitative and quantitative traditions in social work research. We will discuss paradigmatic/conceptual issues, reasons for mixing methods, various research designs and analytic strategies, enhancing rigor, and an example of an NIH funded mixed method program of social work research. Workshop participants will be invited to discuss ways in which they might expand their own research agendas to encompass mixed method approaches.
