Real-life, comprehensive and interesting cases are drawn from the fields of child welfare, family practice, medical social work, and social justice, among others. Juliet C. Rothman's book stresses the importance of collecting solid information and then using one of three alternative, frequently-used theories and principles (Gewirth's Ethical Principles Hierarchy, Loewenberg and Dolgoff's Ethical Principles Screen, and Beauchamp and Childress'Bioethics Model) for solving ethical dilemmas. In response to student demand for a casebook that relates directly to situations they might encounter in the field, this text includes 30 student- contributed ethics cases. Useful and practical examples of ethical problems, information needed to achieve proper resolution, and the students'thought processes were edited to support and reflect the six Ethical Standards in the new NASW Code of Ethics.
