Yet despite a wealth of research indicating the certainty of uncertainty, some practitioners still assume that uncertainty is something to be eliminated or controlled (Gibbs, 2002: 154–8). Given clear acknowledgement of uncertainty in professional practice, how do we understand this persistent need for certainty? Perhaps professional status is somewhat dependent on management of risk or, at least, the perception of it – the conundrum for professionals is whether (and how) their knowledge can be made and applied in ways that effectively reduce these uncertainties, despite the fact that they are integral to current human and social experience.

The goals people have for their lives and the choices they make in action also express values. Thus, values are an integral part of every element of social work, whether at the micro, the meso or the macro level, in direct or indirect practice and in every imaginable setting.
