Changes in ideas about social welfare have required caring professions to adapt their practices in ways which have challenged their underlying values and their relationships with service users. Focusing on nursing, remedial therapy and social work, this book examines core social values expressed through policy. The implications of these ideas for the caring professions in social welfare are explored, as are important questions about the use of industrial and commercial metaphors in health and human services.
