Overview

This book explores the far-reaching ethical implications of recent changes in the organization and practice of the social professions, including social work, community and youth work. Drawing on moral philosophy, professional ethics and new empirical research, the author explores such questions as:
* Can any occupation justifiably claim a special set of ethics?
* What is the impact of the new 'ethics of distrust' on the autonomy discretion and creativity of practitioners?
* How does inter-professional working challenge conceptions of professional identities and roles?
* Do 'professional ethics' act as an obstruction to constructive developments?
Combing interviews with practitioners with developments in ethical theory, Ethics, Accountability and the Social Professions shows the complexity and range of issues at stake.
