Description Social work finds itself in a situation full of changes and uncertainties which press social workers and educators to perceive in depth the core values of the profession. The reflection of ethical aspect of situations could help professionals to understand themselves better as the personality of the professional is the main tool to help service users on the one hand and to critically reflect upon the social work agenda as well. The aim of the contribution is to answer a question: How do social workers respond to ethical problems and dilemmas in their practise of social work? The previously publishes concept of workers’ experiences with the dilemmas of the work with service users (published mainly by Musil) is modified on the base of the results of the secondary analyze of data from selected researches. The authors modify the former concept taking into account also the subjective and objective aspect and partly connect it with models of understanding of social work by social workers.
