Child Care Practices in Institutions

By Joseph Bonapart

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

Responding to Maurice Bernstein's "Prevailing Practices in Child Placement", which appears in the same issue as this article, the author argues that Bernstein's abstract and categorical reasoning obscures the complexity and diversity of the child placement field. While Bernstein seems to assume that foster care and institutional care are "opposite" courses, and that one institution is like another, the author argues that there may be a multiplicity of appropriate approaches for a single case. He uses as an example his institution, the Jewish Orphan's Home of Southern California, in Los Angeles.
