The Work Therapy Research Center

By Asher Soloff

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1961

The Jewish Vocational Service of Chicago initiated in 1961 a five-year study of the chronically mentally ill whose "major objective is to demonstrate the usefulness of a workshop program in helping patients return to the community as working persons." The author describes some of the challenges facing the beginning of the project, including selection of patients for the control and experiment groups, the willingness of clients to participate in the experiment group (which asked more of them than the control group), and determination of criteria of success.
