Ethics and Values (ELE005)

Semester: 
Fall

This course is an introduction to the topic, but new questions and dilemmas related to ethics and values will arise in every aspect of practice, and in every piece of work you undertake as a social worker.

Questions of ethics and values are generally everywhere in life. We all have our views as to what is important, what is right and what is wrong. No one comes to this topic as a beginner. However, in everyday life we are not necessarily always required to examine our values. Questions to do with ethics and values are everywhere in social work. This course is an introduction to the topic, but new questions and dilemmas related to ethics and values will arise in every aspect of practice, and in every piece of work you undertake as a social worker. After each lesson there will be a question paper, which needs to be completed and submitted online to your personal tutor for marking. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal tutor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course.
