This is especially so when care, empathy and concern for the needs of others are included in the list of appropriate virtues. For virtue ethics, the focus shifts from general theories and principles to the particularities of character and dispositions or ‘virtues’. The morally right action is not the one that is in accordance with certain principles, but what the virtuous person would do in certain circumstances (Hursthouse, 1999). From this follows the importance of virtue education in all contexts, including the context of the professions.
If we also think about these questions in the context of life course theory, adulthood is associated with finding one’s professional role or identifying the main source of income generation through employment. As we have begun to identify, negotiating this in times of change, shifting personal circumstance and economic hardship has a key influence on how we enter the social work profession and its meanings to both ourselves and others. Arnett (2000: 473) states that emerging adulthood is a distinct period of the life course characterized by change and exploration of possible life directions, which offers the most opportunity for identity explorations in the areas of love, work and worldviews.
One of the advantages of virtue ethics is that, by focusing on the importance of cultivating virtues through education, it provides a reliable basis for morally correct behaviour. The compassionate social worker will always act in a compassionate manner, no matter what the circumstances. Interestingly, even Beauchamp and Childress, who developed the principles approach, admit, in the fourth edition of their book Principles of Biomedical Ethics (1994), that ‘often what counts most in moral life is not consistent adherence to principles and rules, but reliable character, moral good sense, and emotional responsiveness’ (quoted in Banks, 2006: 58).
