Values and Ethics in Social Work Practice
- Lester Parrott - Keele University, UK
Legal/Ethical Issues in Social Work
"Excellent text - ties principles to the national standards well. Easy to use and invaluable." - Lecturer, Liverpool Hope University
Excellent book with lots of case studies and useful diagrams for students. Very well presented with all the appropriate knowledge for those entering the profession.
Parrott, as always, has produced a text which is readable, relevant and interesting. This is a recommended text for the BA (Hons) Social Work degree.
This is a very useful text for social work students.
It covers key areas in the subject for the social work degree and I find the exercises provide thought provoking case scenarios for students and practitioners.
I thought it provided a really useful context for social work values and anti-oppressive practice and will be recommending this text to my students for their social work degree study.
The chapter on anti-oppressive practice is the one in particular that I have recommended for supplemental reading. On the whole a well wrriten book which will have appeal for Stage 1 students
Have recommeded to students undertaking Ethical Dilemmas & Decision Making, and, from feedback, theyare using it for their assignment. Very accessible to those who have not approach the subject within an academic context before.
This is a very clear introduction to ethics and values for all social work students. I strongly recommend this book as a starting point for considering moral philosophy in social work practice.
fabulous text easily accessible for students will be reommeding this as one for the student reading list next semester
