In any line of work, virtues of all sorts, especially the Cardinal Virtues are needed to perform your job well. A social worker’s mission according to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW, “National Association of Social Workers: Code of Ethics.” National Association of Social Workers, 4 of August 2017, accessed: 9/24/2017) “is to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty.” (NASW, “National Association of Social Workers: Code of Ethics.” National Association of Social Workers, 4 of August 2017, accessed: 9/24/2017) Social workers advocate to make changes in the world to benefit people. We fight social issues for those who are unable to. In order to be social workers, we need all four of the Cardinal Virtues- Justice, Prudence, Fortitude, and Temperance.
