American Social Work Imperialism: Consequences for Professional Education in Israel

By Edward Prager

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Winter 1985

Since the establishment of Israel's first school of social work, Israeli social work educators, for numerous reasons, have looked to the West for curriculum content and structure. A distinctively Israeli organizing framework for social work education is lacking, the absence of which has been detrimental to student and client alike. The author calls for the indigenous development of an educational framework(s) answering to Israel's unique needs and culturally diverse populations. One such model, based upon a cognitive-humanistic orientation to the study of man, is suggested.
