The Fatherless Boys Project of the Jewish Board of Guardians: Some Therapeutic Implications

By Ruth Stark

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1976

The author discusses the positive experience of her agency, the Jewish Board of Guardians, a mental health agency in New York City, with a "non-threatening intervention" program for boys in maternally-headed homes. The program, called the Fatherless Boys Project, endeavors to forestall the development of serious emotional problems by sustaining some participants outside of a treatment situation, while ensuring that other children who do need treatment receive it. The author also provides a case illustration. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.53, no.2, December 1976, p.201-207.
