"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
