Value: Dignity and Worth of the Person

Ethical principle: Social workers respect the inherent dignity and worth of the person.

Social workers treat people in a caring and respectful fashion, mindful of individual differences and cultural and ethnic diversity. Social workers promote clients` socially responsible self-determination. Social workers seek to enhance clients` capacity and opportunity to change and address their own needs. Social workers are cognizant of their dual responsibility to clients and to the broader society. They seek to resolve conflicts between clients` interests and the broader society`s interests in a socially responsible manner consistent with the values, ethical principles, and ethical standards of the profession.
