Social work practice is in a constant state of change, as it is deeply embedded in welfare systems that are subject to political, economic, social and cultural shifts and crises. Notable trends in the last few decades include the growing technicisation, managerialisation and marketization of public service professions. This is resulting in less personal engagement between social workers and service users, reduced professional autonomy, increased public accountability and greater influence of private profit. At the same time, there has been a 'turn to ethics' in both the academic literature and in the fields of public policy. This presentation will examine the nature of the 'turn to ethics' and the implications for social work practice.
