Service users often say that the traits they most value in social workers are their ability to be non-judgmental, their listening skills and their sense of fairness: their strong ethical value base. But how can social workers ensure the decisions they make are ethically sound? This book offers guidelines to negotiating ethical dilemmas in various social work settings; from direct care work with individual service users to working within organisational and multidisciplinary contexts.
