Social work ethics provide practitioners with guidance on how to promote social work values such as respect, social justice, human relationships, service, competence, and integrity. Students entering the profession need to develop a real-world understanding of how to apply these values in practice while also managing the dilemmas that arise when social workers, clients, and others encounter conflicting values and ethical obligations. Ethics and Values in Social Work offers a comprehensive set of teaching and learning materials to help students develop the knowledge, self-awareness, and critical thinking skills required to handle values and ethical issues in all levels of practice--individual, family, group, organization, community, and social policy. BSW and MSW students will particularly appreciate how complex ethical obligations and theories have been translated into plain language. Additionally, the comprehensive set of case examples and exercises provides realistic scenarios to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills across a range of practice situations.

New to this Edition
• Includes two entirely new chapters ("International Social Work, Values, and Ethics" and "Private Clinical Social Work Practice, Values, and Ethics")
• Covers updates regarding new laws and ethical practice standards, including the revised NASW Code of Ethics (featuring additional standards on the use of technology in social work practice and a major revision on exceptions to confidentiality)
• Shares additional material on narrative ethics, virtue ethics, and ethics of care (which assists with the relational and emotional aspects of managing ethical issues)
• Features new case studies, discussion questions, and exercises reflecting current and emerging ethical issues (e.g., duties to protect in relation to clients who may be affiliated with terrorist organizations; videoconferencing, social robots, electronic records, apps, and other technology in practice; interprofessional practice; and international practice issues)
