Social Work Ethics
By

Rating
This critical introduction to professional ethics for social workers recognizes that social work is largely a state-sponsored activity and therefore poses issues in political theory. The traditional values and rules of practice ethics are explained using examples. The critique is followed by a concept of social work and its relationship to the state. A new approach to practice ethics is developed based on four cardinal principles of respect, justice, citizenship and discipline.

Reviews

'...required reading for students of social work. It is a most timely addition to the lexicon of texts concerning social work ethics.' - Social Work Education 'Social Work Ethics is a book that marks the territory, and defines social work in ways that should cause the profession to think more carefully about the publicly defined and coercive aspects of its role.' - European Journal of Social Work '...a wise and provocative book.' - Martin Davies, Community Care
