Editorial Reviews

Review

If social workers' understanding of professional values and ethical behavior has matured in recent years as Dr. Reamer believes, he and a few other social work ethicists are responsible. . . . A sophisticated analysis of forms of malpractice and professional misconduct in both direct and indirect practice is richly illustrated by practice vignettes. Throughout, the growing complexity of ethical practice now and in the twenty-first century is clear and compelling. This is a book to be studied by all social work students and seasoned practitioners. -- From the Publisher

Review

Rick Reamer has done it again. Social Work Values and Ethics is an invaluable tool for the experienced professional and the social work student, providing clear guidelines for exploring and resolving the ethical issues of our time.

(Lawrence Shulman, Boston University of Social Work) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The strongest advantage to this book is that it is written by one who was intimately involved in the development of the various codes of ethics adopted by social workers over the last thirty years. When Reamer explains a principle, value, or rule, the reader gets the feeling that it is an inside peak into the thought processes the committees actually shared.
Reamer presents social work as a value-laden profession. In chapter one he shares a brief historical perspective on the profession, and places the development of ethical codes for social workers within a larger national context that includes erosion of confidence in authority figures and scientific explanations.
The second chapter provides an excellent discussion of values and their importance to the profession, and it reconsiders the historical roots as a conflict between "case" social work and "cause" social work. His summary of the six orientations that have been taken toward social work is excellent. This chapter includes a long listing of various taxonomies of social work values. While of interest historically, it seemed a bit out of place and somewhat peripheral to the primary focus of the book, that is, the preparation of social workers for practice. It closes with discussion of the inevitable conflict between personal and professional values, and points to the implications of trust and distributive justice as effective means to resolve the conflict.
Ethical dilemmas and decision making are the focus of chapter three. Once again Reamer adds to his historical summary, including additional material on the development of social work codes of ethics.
