Attitudes Toward Social Welfare -- A Social Work Hurdle

By Charles S. Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1959

The author argues that antiquated ideas regarding the nature of social services and support from the needy are widespread in modern times. He outlines major streams of thought vis-a-vis social responsibility, including classical Greco-Roman ideas, Jewish ideas, Christian ideas, and popular culture ideas in modernity. Social workers must educate the public to ensure that social services are not seen as spoiling or coddling, the author maintains. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. By Sanford Sherman, v.35, no.4, June 1959, p.393-400.
