Qualitative methods and its application in social work

The aim of the article is to characterize qualitative methods and their application in the field of social work. Qualitative research methods are first characterized in relation to quantitative approach. Next sections outline the objectives of applying qualitative methods in domain of social work and their role as a diagnostic and evaluation technique. Article provides a concise overview of the phases in the development of qualitative research methodologies and their reception in the field of social work. In the first stages of this methodological development, it was typical to conceive of the researcher and the methods themselves as external and neutral to the research subject. A significant feature of the qualitative studies as they are conducted nowadays is the co-production of knowledge by researchers and social work practitioners.
