For this to occur, being treated differently has to be accompanied by a valuing or seeing the worth of a person undergoing that experience. It means being treated with dignity as human beings whatever the circumstances and is where humanism as a value comes through. Values and critical practice Critical practitioners have an important question to answer. In doing critical practice, are they practising different values? In other words, do professional values for critical practice differ from professional values for other paradigms of practice?

To use these theories for critical purposes in social work is beyond the scope of this book, and would require extensive study of these writers and their modern interpreters and successors. However, we take three points from their ideas. First, they emphasise social change and the importance of developing collective action to achieve it. Much social thought assumes that there is an identifiable social structure, which we can analyse and describe. What these theories all emphasise is that society does not exist in an unchanging or slowly changing social order, but that it evolves, or may be subject to revolutions.

Yet, the crucial question remains: How can social workers minimise the number of inadequate decisions made in such circumstances? Responding to this question requires discussion among employers, policy-makers, trainers and the general public as well as the specific people involved in the case. However, contemporary discourses on the subject seldom focus on holistic responses to the problem. As countless inquiries into the death of looked-after children or their continued sexual abuse indicate, it is usually the practice of an individual practitioner that is scrutinised and held responsible when things go wrong.
