This critical introduction to professional ethics for social workers recognizes that social work is largely a state-sponsored activity and therefore poses issues in political theory. The traditional values and rules of practice ethics are explained using examples. The critique is followed by a concept of social work and its relationship to the state. A new approach to practice ethics is developed based on four cardinal principles of respect, justice, citizenship and discipline.
