this paper applies the steps of an ethical decision making model for social work to a management situation involving resource allocation in a nonprofit organization. The ethical dilemma is presented by way of a hypothetical case study, in which a social worker’s responsibility to clients is in conflict with the worker’s responsibility to society.
