This chapter covers the first three steps in the nine-step process for conducting mixed methods research in social work. First it discusses developing a purpose statement and research questions, then it covers mixed methods design notation and language. The chapter also shares some popular mixed methods research designs, including the convergent parallel design, the explanatory sequential design, the exploratory sequential design, the embedded design, the transformative design, and the multiphase design, as well as those that are specific to social work and the steps involved in actually choosing a mixed methods design.

Keywords:   purpose statement, research questions, mixed methods designs, concurrent, explanatory sequential, exploratory sequential, embedded, multiphase, transformative
