Abstract

Clinical social workers highly value client self-determination yet little is known about how the practitioner applies the concept in ongoing practice. In a small exploratory study, 20 social workers, randomly selected from Utah's licensure list, were interviewed in depth about decision-making related to client self-determination. Even in a small, relatively homogeneous population, enormous variations were found in the application of the principle.
