Abstract

Social workers behavior and actions are guided by a Code of Ethics. We are not lone rangers or vigilantes on a crusade to right the perceived wrongs inflicted by impersonal bureaucracies. We are employed in host settings and are taught how to bring about change in individuals, groups, organizations and communities. We place ourselves, our clients, and our profession at risk when we violate rules and regulations, and undermine authority. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
