Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Social Work Ethics and Values is a comprehensive exploration and assessment of current and future issues facing social work practice and education. It is the first book to codify ethical practices for social workers from across the globe and in myriad workplace settings.

Each section meaningfully captures this complex subject area:

  • ethics writ large
  • visions of diverse values
  • abortion
  • relationship and gender issues
  • micro and mezzo practice settings
  • social work education
  • technological issues
  • spirituality
  • globalism
  • economic issues
  • special topics

Leaving no stone unturned, this handbook comprehensively addresses the most controversial topics in an evenhanded manner. Among professional social workers, values and ethics traverse political boundaries, cultural identifications, and languages. This handbook will help to make sense of this unity within diversity.

With contributions from the world?s leading scholars, this book will be a valuable resource for all social work students, academics, researchers, and practitioners who seek a coherent and objective analysis in the abstract arena of ethics and values.
