Gandhian Principles in Social Work Practice: Ethics Revisited

Title:Gandhian Principles in Social Work Practice: Ethics Revisited
Authors:Walz T. and Ritchie H.
Publication:Social Work / National Association of Social Workers
Enumeration:vol. 45, no. 3, pp. 213-222/May 2000
Abstract:Social work as an expression of culture is a highly value-laden activity. The emergence of many new ethical issues resulting from technological and scientific advancements suggests a need for greater attention to values and ethics. In this article the authors argue that the thought of Mahatma Gandhi, as revealed in his social activism, is relevant to social work ethics and a resource for its ethical enrichment. Principles such as seeking truth through service to others, individual self-development, nonviolent social action, and material simplicity could enhance the current NASW Code of Ethics.
