Social Work: The Value-Based Profession

Gracious Thomas (Editor)

The profession of social work is grounded on a set of core values and principles that guide the profession in its pursuit of social justice and social welfare. Although certain core values are being promoted by the various national associations of social workers all over the world, there is no known reference in the form of books/texts that contains a detailed description of these values which guide this profession. The twelve core values of social work discussed in the book are: service to humanity; social justice; respect for dignity and worth of the person; importance of human relationships; integrity; competence; loyalty to profession; patriotism; cultural sensitivity; teachership; hard work; and responsibility and commitment. The book is an outcome of the effort made by some of the promising social work academics under the guidance and support of the editor. This book will be of immense use to social work teachers, students, practitioners, NGO functionaries and policy framers.
