  • The purpose of this study is to examine the Korean social workers' level of social work values, advocacy attitude and advocacy intervention, and to verify the relations among social work education, social work advocacy and social work values by examining whether social work education influences social work advocacy and social work values, and whether social work values affect social work advocacy. Further, this study wishes to confirm not only the direct effect that social work education has on social work advocacy, but also how social work education indirectly influences social work advocacy through social work values on the social level as a mediator. The research of this study was conducted on 461 social work practitioners who have obtained either social worker licenses or mental health social worker licenses and are currently working in the field. As survey tools, this study utilized social work advocacy attitude, social work advocacy intervention, outcomes of social work education, social work values, self-esteem and locus of control. Collected data were analyzed by using SPSS/PC+ 11.5 for one-way ANOVA and t-test, Pearson's correlation, reliability analysis, exploratory factor analysis and multiple regression. To sum up the results of the study in terms of the research hypothesis, the research hypothesis was established according to the analysis method of the testing mediation of Baron & Kenny (1986) in order to examine whether social work values on the social level intervene between social work education and social work advocacy. The results of the hypothesis test confirm that social work values on the social level serve as a mediator variable.

  • The purpose of this study was to develop the first social work values scale in Korea. Its development would be expected to increase empirical studies on social work values. Based upon the literature review of social work values, the examination of codes of ethics as well as existing scales, and the comments from professionals in this field, 62 preliminary items were developed. Preliminary items were evaluated with a total of 521 social workers who were working in various fields of social work in Seoul and surrounding areas. A series of exploratory factor analyses were conducted to find out the optimal structure of the scale. After deleting 29 items with low factor loadings or being cross-loaded, the scale is composed of three factors with each factor having 11 items. Confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the factor structure of the scale obtained by exploratory factor analysis. The first factor was named autonomy, the second factor was named equality, and third factor was named paternalistic intervention. Each component of the social work values scale is found to be reliable and valid.

  • This Study explores and describes the present status and effects of Korean social work ethic course , reflecting increasing concerns about social worker's ethics. Using the member list of the Council of Korean Social Welfare Education, this study first examines the extent to which the ethic course is established and how the course is managed. Then, for the purpose of investigating the practical effects of the enrollment in the ethic course, using the test scores designed to measure the students' sensitivity to ethical issues, this study compared test scores between students who attended the course and those who did not. This study also compared pre-post test scores of students who attended the course. The results show that enrollment in the course contributes to significant changes in the students' ethical sensitivities, in spite of social work education system that does not very yet empathize the ethics curriculum very strongly. Further, enrollment in the ethic course is proved to be a more powerful factor to ethical sensitivity than any other demographic or education related factors. These findings suggest a stronger emphasis abd serious consideration of the course, as well as more efforts to bring up professionals and invest in research in the field of social work ethic education.

  • This study examined the effects of work values and the career decision level on the major commitment of the university students majoring in social welfare. For this purpose, a survey of 351 undergraduate students majoring in social welfare at 4 universities located in Kangwon-do was conducted and the data were analyzed. The work values consisted of intrinsic values and extrinsic values. The career decision level was measured by the career decision scale (CDS) and the major commitment was measured by the flow state scale (FSS). The research findings are as follows. First, the career decision level (3.43) and major commitment (3.58) of the university students majoring in social welfare were slightly higher than the mid-point on the 5 point Likert scale. In addition, the intrinsic work value (4.05) were higher than the extrinsic work value (3.34). Second, the intrinsic work values and career decision level were positively correlated with the major commitment. Third, the extrinsic work value had a negative effect on the major commitment (${\beta}=-.34$, p<.001); however, the intrinsic work value (${\beta}=.31$, p<.001) and career decision level (${\beta}=.18$, p<.001) had a positive effects on the major commitment. This paper also discusses the theoretical and practical implications for university student's work values, career decision level, and major commitment based on the research findings.

  • Although social work values are stressed among social work educators as well as practitioners, empirical studies on values have been very scarce. The objective of this study is to validate a Korean Version of the Professional Opinion Scale(POS). The Korean version was validated with a sample of 325 social worker working in various types of social work agencies. A series of confirmatory factor analysis suggested that 8 items be removed, resulting in 32 items with 4 factors. The Korean version has the same factor structure as the original version of the POS reported by its developer. The Korean version of the POS are found to be a reliable and valid instrument for measuring social work values. However, validation with more representative samples is needed to improve the quality of the Korean version of the POS.

  • This discovery-oriented study explored 31 social workers' perceptions of discrepancies between explicit and implicit rules in their work places that are supposed to affect the quality of social work services, and identified eight categories of dilemmas: (a) confused accountability or purpose, (b) ambiguous principle, (c) improper authority, (d) confused role of social workers, (e) conflict between ideal and reality, (f) confused work ethics, (g) confused boundary of workers' rights, and (h) binds. These eight categories revealed the real philosophy and purposes of social work agencies, work ethics and values prevalent among social work agencies, agencies' orientation toward clients, and the conditions of social support from the society in large. Instead of searching for discrete variables as separately responsible for inefficient social work services, this approach probed malfunctioning implicit rules in a holistic context to see if inefficient or ineffective provision of social work services is a logical response to a much larger and deeper nexus. Insight into discrepant rules does not solely ensure the improvement of social work practice in the field, particularly if their identification is simply used as another opportunity to blame and avoid self-responsibility. However, such discrepancies between implicit and explicit rules are real enough to the staff workers and agency administrators that they may want to begin the dialogue of contradictory rules as a way of sanctioning discussion of previously forbidden topics. This study provided the ground-work for the dialogue.
