Abstract:

"... A thought-provoking text that masterfully draws on classic and contemporary theory to demonstrate the centrality of conscious ethical reasoning for social work practice today ... with currency for students at all levels of study, social work practitioners and those in academe." - Professor Sandra Drawer, University of Winchester.

"... A committed, accessible and timely text which deserves to be on the reading list of every social work programme... Pullen and Cowden remind us that social work is first and foremost an ethical profession." - Dr lain Ferguson, University of Stirling.

The Ethical Foundations of Social Work provides an accessible, theoretically rigorous and practice-based grounding in social work ethics. The authors examine when, how and why principles and debates historically emerged, and then explicitly map them onto everyday ethical challenges and situations in social work practice. As such, the book promotes an ethically c̀onscious' approach where principles can be applied flexibly and confidently, as tools for critically responding to problems.

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 --Book Jacket.
