"Ethical Practice in Social Work" provides social work students and practitioners with the tools to develop ethical decision-making and problem-solving skills for the changing world of welfare practice. Through case studies in each chapter, the authors demonstrate how social work principles and values can be used to transform practice into an active, effective, inclusive and empowering process for both professionals and their clients. Exercises and discussion questions assist students in developing their ethical understanding. They discuss the ethical principles social workers have traditionally adhered to, the nature of the 'good social worker' in the contemporary context, professionalism, and the role ethics can play in relationships with clients and organisations.
