As a boundary crossing profession, social workers interact with various professional groups and frequently experience ethical dilemmas and apparent value clashes. This chapter argues that most helping professions share many values and ethical principles. Many of the interprofessional values clashes are more likely down to structural issues. As social work has historically been practised in host settings since its inception, the profession is well placed for cross boundary work. When value clashes do exist, having social work's holistic systems perspective allows professionals to work across boundaries. Understanding the shared professional values and beliefs and seeing structural barriers as root of interprofessional “value clashes” opens opportunities for overcoming barriers.
