By presenting the genesis of the research idea and delineating and developing the concept of virtue in social work practice, this chapter brings out the significance of virtue-led practice and how it strengthens 'being' of social workers along with their thinking and doing. It summarises research methods employed and major findings of an Australian Research Council discovery project, 'Virtuous Practitioners: Empowering social workers' and discusses implications for social work education, research and practice.
