|About the Book|
The Ethical Foundations of Social Work provides an easy-to-grasp, theoretical rigorous and practice-based grounding in social work ethics. The authors first examine when, how and why principles and debates historically emerged, then explicitly map them onto everyday ethical challenges and situations in social work practice. As such, the book promotes an ethically conscious approach where principles can be flexibly and confidently applied as tools for critical problem solving.The Ethical Foundations of Social Work is essential reading for social work students and practitioners looking for a thorough grounding in ethical issues and practice. It will also be of interest more widely in social care and the social sciences.
