Editorial Reviews

Review


"Barsky's six stages of ethical management is a model that will be widely used and cited in the future, and this text will likely emerge as the definitive study on social work ethics. The integration of the gripping case examples and theory of ethics is superior."--Katherine van Wormer, Professor of Social Work, University of Northern Iowa


"...extensive and authoritative...while utilizing an easy-to-read writing style and a wealth of examples embedded in well conceived classroom exercises....There are many strengths to this book that are often absent in similar texts."--Journal of Social Work Values and Ethics


"This text is ideal for exploring both theoretical and practical aspects of social work ethics. Students benefit from the varied and thought-provoking scenarios given. The extensive glossary is very helpful and not seen in other texts on ethics." --Claudia J. Dewane, Associate Professor of Social Work, Temple University

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By N. Richie on February 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
Over a 40-year career in the human services, I became acutely aware of the relevance of ethical behavior on the part of human services workers - whether during my time as a psychiatric hospital volunteer while in college, followed by time spent as a licensed master's-level social worker, or ending with decades spent teaching at 4 universities. I always had an "ethics component" in all my courses -- in some institutions whole courses were devoted to the subject. Over the decades, as the for-profit, entrepreneurial sector made significant in-roads into what were traditionally not-for-profit services,I saw a change in the attiudes of many entering students, and a focus in textbooks and in agency practice toward adopting the for-profit ethos and operational modalities as a matter of "survival". The bottom-line became increasingly a priority highly-valued and influential at all levels of decision-making unfortunately, sometimes to the detriment of the quality of services and their ethical delivery, in my view. It is thus with some pleasure that I appreciate the new textbook by Dr. Allan Edward Barsky. From the start(literally) - the inside front cover, students are presented with a "Framework for Managing Ethical Issues" which is a tip-off that the volume is written in student-friendly language, and covers ethical issues in a comprehensive manner -- including their impact on risk management, on resolving conflict, distinctions between "the ethical" and "the legal", and a host of other issues which impact the intersection of ethics and values in social work (and the other human services as well).Read more ›
