By Bernard Moss

Exploring the value base of social work involves traveling in areas that may seem familiar. However, values can be eroded by pressure and anxiety. This book examines new insights that can reinforce integrity and re-energize commitment. Surveying relevant theory helps individuals consider the impact values have on personal and professional journeys. Moving from theory to practice, those familiar with the UK mental health's Ten Essential Capabilities - and those new to them - will see their far-reaching effects into the practice of all social work professionals, and on issues of discrimination and oppression at work. The book includes numerous exercises for individual or group use, plus recommendations for further reading, and websites assisting the reader towards the goal of best social work practice.
