Abstract

Social work aims to promote social change, development, cohesion, and the empowerment of people and communities. Its professionals work with institutions and families and help to provide and advance various aspects of human equity such as civil rights, unemployment insurance, worker's compensation, disability pay, medicaid and medicare, and child abuse and neglect prevention. In recent years, social engineering practices started to threaten not only just a single or group of individuals but also the entire society. Considering the potential threats of social engineering practices on the practices of social work, strategies and good practices should be developed to achieve the sustainable goals of social work. Since the social engineering practices target our fundamental biases, our ignorance, and our lack of cognition, the key to counteracting them is awareness. This chapter covers the potential threats of social engineering practices, challenges related to counteracting them, methodologies used to uncover them, and future research directions in this domain.
