The research was conducted to investigate the relationship between moral maturity, social value orientation and self- regulation in social workers. It was hypothesized that there is likely to be a relationship between moral maturity, social value orientation and self- regulation in social workers. Correlation research design and purposive sampling technique was used to collect the data. The sample for current research comprised of N = 150 (77 male and 73 female) social workers from Lahore. Ethical position Questionnaire by Forsyth (EPQ, 1980), Social Values Orientation (SVO) questionnaires by Van Lange (SVO, 1999) and Behavioral Inhibition and Behavioral Activation (BIS/BAS) scales by Carver and White (BIS/BAS, 1994) was used as assessments measurement. The results revealed a positive relation between moral maturity, social value orientation and self- regulation in social workers. It was assessed that moral maturity and social value orientation was found not to be the predictors of self- regulation. Hence, it was concluded that moral maturity, social value orientation had relation with self-regulation in social workers.
