The social work in Argentina has had, from its beginnings, a strong concern for values and professional ethics. This gave rise to different codes of ethics that showed different conceptions about what these values are, what is understood by ethics, and what the main ethical dilemmas are in the professional practice. The debate on ethics in the profession was acquiring a major degree of complexity, broadening the look and scope of it. From an individual ethical conception, it passes to an ethical-political collective look that includes values and general principles that guide the profession. These values and ethical-political principles are incorporated into the Federal Law of Social Work in the year 2014, with character of public order, and are applied for all the social workers of Argentina.
