This essay will examine how social care values and principles influence practice. My own value base was influenced by my parents and extended family initially. As I was growing up teachers and peers also influenced my values. Amongst some of the values I live my life by are having self-respect and being respectful of others; being trustworthy, honest and truthful; being non-judgemental.

These values mean that I always try to treat the service users I work with in a non-judgemental way, with respect & using

In diversity the key words that a social worker should pay attention to is cultural awareness, self-awareness, ethno-conscious practice and sensitivity.

It’s difficult to accept those events, realities or ideas that we don't share, or don't understand because we’re not able to conceive them as possible.

Of course there will be important conflicts of interest between service users and their carers which will need to be faced up to at an individual level. But services should not be provided by exploiting the personal commitment and dedication of carers. Families who care for individuals whose behaviour presents challenges are subject to considerable and continual stress, both physical and psychological. Although staffs is not permanently on duty as family carers can be, they are still subject to the same stresses when supporting people whose behaviour challenges. This is true even in settings which aim to do no more than contain people. Similar concerns apply to staff as to carers. The higher aspirations often found in progressive services impose extra strain on staff and here too it is important to balance the demands of working constructively with people who can be very difficult, day in and day out, with the needs of individual staff for emotional and practical respite and ongoing support.
