A historic and defining feature of social work is the profession’s focus on individual well-being in a social context and the well-being of society. Social workers promote social justice and social change with and on behalf of clients. A “client” can be an individual, family, group, organization, or community. In the broadening scope of the modern social worker’s role, some practitioners have in recent years traveled to war-torn countries to provide psychosocial assistance to families and survivors.
Newer areas of social work practice involve management science. The growth of “social work administration” for transforming social policies into services and directing activities of an organization toward the achievement of goals is a related field. Helping clients with accessing benefits such as unemployment insurance and disability benefits, to assist individuals and families in building savings and acquiring assets to improve their financial security over the long-term, to manage large operations, etc. requires social workers to know financial management skills to help clients and organization’s to be financially self-sufficient.
Financial social work also helps clients with low-income or low to middle-income, people who are either unbanked (do not have a banking account) or underbanked (individuals who have a bank account but tend to rely on high-cost non-bank providers for their financial transactions), with better mediation with financial institutions and induction of money management skills.
Another area that social workers are focusing is risk management, risk in social work is taken as Knight in 1921 defined “If you don’t even know for sure what will happen, but you know the odds, that is the risk and If you don’t even know the odds, that is uncertainty.” Risk management in social work means minimizing the risks while increasing potential benefits for clients by analyzing the risks and benefits in the duty of care or in decisions.
In the United States, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, professional social workers are the largest group of mental health services providers. There are more clinically trained social workers—over 200,000—than psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric nurses combined. Federal law and the National Institutes of Health recognize social work as one of five core mental health professions.
Examples of fields a social worker may be employed in are poverty relief, life skills education, community development, rural development, forensics and corrections, legislation, industrial relations, project management, child protection, elder protection, women’s rights, human rights, systems optimization, finance, addictions rehabilitation, child development, cross-cultural mediation, occupational safety and health, disaster management, mental health, psychosocial therapy, disabilities, etc.
One text, Technology, and Society by Anabel Quan-Haase defines the term surveillance as “watching over” (Quan-Haase. 2016. P 213), he continues to explain that the observation of others socially and behaviorally is natural, but it becomes more like surveillance when the purpose of the observation is to keep guard over someone (Quan-Haase. 2016. P 213). Often, at the surface level the use of surveillance and surveillance technologies within the social work profession is seemingly and unethical, invasion of privacy.
When engaging with the social work code of ethics a little more deeply, it becomes obvious that the line between ethical and unethical becomes blurred. Within the social work code of ethics, there are multiple mentions of the use of technology within social work practice. The one that seems the most applicable to surveillance or artificial intelligence is 5.02 article f, “When using electronic technology to facilitate evaluation or research” and it goes on to explain that clients should be informed when technology is being used within the practice (Workers. 2008. Article 5.02).
