What constitutes boundary distinctions for professionals in the caring services? By discussing professionalism as a set of workplace practices where boundaries have been redefined, this book argues that changes in professionalism are in response to "new managerialism," the enterprise culture and a drive toward credentialism. Based upon new research studies using experiences from probation, social work, and small business and church settings, the contributors discuss issues like changing professional-client relationships, the relationship between personal and professional values, and conflicts arising from different understandings of professionalism.
