Values and Ethics in Social Work Practice by Lester Parrott
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Many social work students have little experience of values and ethics in social work when they begin their studies. This book tackles that lack of knowledge by identifying current issues in applying ethical decisions to social work, investigating them within an anti-discriminatory framework and against the background of the code of practice for social care workers and employers. Using real life case studies, traditional perspectives such as principled and consequentialist approaches are explained and current developments in virtue theory and ethics are introduced.
