The "Unique" Jewish Family Service Agency

By Peter M. Glick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1979

The author asserts that the generic social worker who can do all things for all people is a myth. No single worker, nor any single agency, he argues, should be the "be-all" and "end-all" for all Jews. The author posits that clinical treatment requires specialized education and training beyond the MSW degree, and that Jewish agencies should address the need for specialization of both workers and agencies to target different segments of the population.
