    DescriptionWhat are my values? What are the values of others around me? What are the values and ethics of the social work profession? An awareness of our own ethical assumptions, and how these inform our practice, is crucial for the student social worker. The second edition of this bestselling book is now split into two parts. Part 1 considers the foundations of every person's values and provides a background to moral philosophy. Part 2 examines key ethical issues and how they determine practice, such as using power, allocating resources, treating others with respect and celebrating diversity. For the second edition, two new chapters have been added to the book, on: - The political dimension in ethical decision making - Realism as a guiding ethical principle. Written in a uniquely straightforward style, everyday social work practice is the key focus throughout. Every chapter includes interactive exercises and case studies, challenging students to reflect on a range of practical dilemmas. Chris Beckett and Andrew Maynard's book is essential reading for all undergraduate and postgraduate social work students.

The authors are very honest in their writing, so students will find it easy to identify with them' - Valeria Carroll, University of Lincoln
