Straight talk about professional ethics.

Strom-Gottfried, Kim.

Lyceum Books


237 pages




For students and practitioners, Strom-Gottfried (ethics and professional practice, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) provides a guide to ethics standards governing social work as applied to situations involving informed consent, decision-making, conflict of interest, boundaries, confidentiality, professionalism, and nondiscrimination. Other topics discussed include competence, self- determination, and sustaining ethical habits, and she describes the critical thinking process--while providing a framework--for examples in practice settings as well as for supervisors, managers, and planners. Each chapter also contains case examples and an overview of the related standards from the NASW Code of Ethics.
