This chapter describes the lay of the land of mixed methods. Whenever possible some illustrative examples are used from published, peer-reviewed sources. This chapter does not go extensively into the mixed methods paradigm debate, as these discussions can be found in other sources. Moreover, in the spirit of introducing a “mixed” way of thinking, the chapter begins with a discussion of the difference between method and methodology for both quantitative and qualitative research. Next it offers and frames a definition of mixed methods research in social work, complete within the context of a social justice framework. The chapter ends with an outline for the nine steps for mixed methods research in social work.

Keywords:   definition, mixed methods, method, methodology, qualitative, quantitative, social justice, social work
