Example text

We do not know the extent and nature of the impact of organizations on the delivery of social services, having to depend on anecdotal reports or descriptive surveys that do not probe deeply into the dynamics involved. We remain equally uninformed as to the impact of our technology on the delivery of service. In relation to technology, we have shown far more creativity in imagining new models of practice than in systematically evaluating their effects and effectiveness. The Alicein-Wonderland principle that “if you don’t know where you’re going, almost any road will take you there,” seems to apply to this proliferation of means, in foggy formulations of ends.

Lacking an opportunity, there can be no question of violation, even if there is willingness and ability to do so. 2. There must be evidence of personal, organizational, or other pressure that would motivate the worker to violate the Code, and concurrent evidence of the worker’s responding to such pressures in a manner that suggest willingness to violate the Code. Lacking evidence of motivation and willingness to violate the Code should lend caution to a judgment of unethical behavior, but by itself would not exclude the possibility of such behavior.

Thus, it is argued that lack of opportunity, for many of our clients, more than lack of motivation or capacity, results in some being disadvantaged. Effort to provide opportunities, in this view, is a commendable objective for service programs intended to help. Now, I would like to take this concern a step further and deal with its more general application: the role of choice in assuring a client’s moral right to participate in decisions affecting him or her. Specifically, what factors enhance the helping process?
