AbstractWith the eight edition of ETHICAL DECISIONS FOR SOCIAL WORK PRACTICE, you'll learn to recognize ethical issues and dilemmas, reason carefully about ethical issues, clarify your ethical aspirations at the level demanded by the profession, and achieve a more ethical stance in your practice. This classic social work text places ethical decision-making within the context of professional ethics and provides useful guidelines, including two ethical screens to help social work practitioners identify priorities among competing ethical obligations. Developed specifically for social workers, the text features numerous case-like exemplars based on real-world practice and drawn from a variety of social work settings.
