Easy to understand, very well written and has a lot of the topics spoken in class. This is a book requested for most human services majors so it is good to have it.read more
Nothing, is a great book. My only problem with it is that it's quite heavy and I had to carry plenty of books around.
Maybe to include a CD with some situational experiences to be able to process and then see if a student can come to a conclusion as to what the best ethical/legal approach would be.read more
How it was easily broke down into different categories as to what types of issues and ethics could be displayed in the workplace. I also liked the assessments at the beginning of the chapter, and then the fact that you could read over the chapter and then go back to the assessment again and make your selection and see how your viewpoints may have changed due to becoming more educated within the chapter readings.
Gave lots of information and description of present day issues that occur in this profession.read more

This was for a undergrad Social Work class called Introduction to Ethics. The class had us using the NASW and the Ohio Code of Ethics and comparing the two a lot to find inconsistencies, and this book was a guide for doing that, and for presenting ethical dilemmas.read more
This book presented many situations in where the "best" response was not obvious. It showed how important it is to have personal guidelines in place before encountering these situations in the real world. The content of the book wasn't extremely engaging, but the overall topic is very relevant and interesting.
This was an easy to read book which is suprising for a ethics book. I actually enjoyed it.read more
I wouldnt change a thing but I did stop reading the examples after the 3rd chapter.
I like the fact that the book demonstrated the issues and ethics that a person in a helping profession should be aware of and it also showed what it looked like and how to not only apply the ethics but also show guides on how to go about solving related problems. I especially like the CD- Ethics in Action that helped me see a live dealing with ethical issues.read more
It gave more vignettes demonstrating ethical issues and how to respond to them. I also appreciated the commentaries, activities and exercises that help me practice what I learned.
By reading the different cases I was able to identify the ethical issues and retain the information more clearly.read more
I was able to understand that at any given point in this profession I will be faced with an ethical issue or dilemma. Having the proper tools and education that was presented in this book has given me the basics.
This book provided me with an understanding of how ethics and moral principals are applied in my profession which is human services. It also allowed me to see that it is important to know how culture, sexual orientation, race, age, gender etc. plays a part in making ethical decisions. I learned that I must be aware of differences and to always pay attention to any biases I may have. I learned the importance of maintain a healthy self and that my learning will never stop and the importance of a counselors role to the client and our community. I have learned how to solve an ethical dilemma using the moral and ethical principles as a guide. This book helped me to decide if I would stay in this field of study or not. There are many challenges that social workers face and if I had not read this book I would not have known how important morals and ethics are I this professionread more
