Ethical Issues in Social Work. An Annotated Bibliography.
Elliott, Martha W., Comp.
Designed as a practical aid to social work students and practitioners interested in approaching the ethical issues inherent in social work practice, this annotated bibliography lists over 500 books and articles, most of which were published between 1970 and 1983. The bibliography has two main parts, of which the first consists of selections from the philosophical and theological literature, selections from the field of applied ethics, and a few books and articles on the teaching of ethics. The second section of the bibliography is a review of recent social work periodical literature and presents topics arranged from the more general to the more specific. Under "General Issues" are three broad topics of concern: (1) "The Individual and the Social Structure," which includes literature dealing with issues of liberty, autonomy, rights, paternalism, social control, coercion, and justice; (2) "The Control of Information" includes resources dealing with confidentiality and privacy; and (3) "Professional Issues" includes works on the nature of professional ethics, codes of ethics, ethical conflicts, and malpractice. Following sections on social administration and social work research, works on social practice areas are subdivided into: aging and the aged, alcoholism and drug addiction, civil rights, crime and delinquency, employment, family and child welfare, health and medical care, mental health, and mental retardation. The final section, social work education, lists resources related to the teaching of social work ethics. (LH)
