The article presents a concrete case and some questions rooted in various ethical perspectives in social work.

Linking different points of view to a specific situation can help social workers understand its ethical features and decide how to act.

Abstract

Which questions could be useful for social workers facing moral choices in daily practice? The article presents a concrete case and some questions rooted in various ethical perspectives in social work. The classical approaches, which include teleological, deontological and rights-based approaches, are referred to as universal and general principles. On the other hand, ‘situated’ positions are linked to specific and unique situations in professional practice, such as ethics of care, narrative approaches and face-to-face ethics. Linking different points of view to a specific situation can help social workers understand its ethical features and decide how to act.
