Overview

For more than a decade, teachers and practitioners have chosen Frederic G. Reamer’s Social Work Values and Ethics for its comprehensive introduction to ethical decision making and practical guidance regarding professional misconduct. Reflecting the legal and technological realities now facing individuals in the field, this new edition features a discussion of the ethical issues arising from practitioner use of online services and social networking sites, as well as an overview of ethical standards protecting confidential information transmitted electronically.

Reamer also adds a chapter on potential conflicts between ethical standards and legal guidelines and a section explaining statutory law, regulatory law, case law, and Constitutional law. He expands his coverage of boundary issues and dual relationships, with new material exploring the complexities of practitioner self-disclosure and the challenges of living and working within small and rural communities. Revised content and case materials include an investigation into the ethics of practitioner engagement with social action and advocacy and a list of updates to the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics. Reamer uniquely compares NASW’s ethics to those of other human service professions, and he pursues a more in-depth analysis of the relevance of cultural difference to ethical dilemmas and decision-making.

A richly textured account of this fascinating region.

— John M. Carroll

Synthesizes for social workers the knowledge and debates around work values and ethical dilemmas, and professional misconduct, that have grown throughout the history of the profession, emphasizing those that are most pressing in contemporary practice. Discusses such aspects as the nature of social work's mission, the process of ethical decision making, confidentiality, paternalism, labor-management disputes, termination of service, and the impaired social worker.
