The Influence of Crisis Intervention Upon Agency Practice

By Judith S. Schild, D. Jane Zimmerman, Marilyn Cohen, Susanna Tagliacozzo

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1974

The authors draw on case examples from their agency, the Jewish Children's Bureau of Chicago, to illustrate issues that arise from the conflict between general procedures of social service agencies with the acute needs of clients in times of crisis. When social workers are expected to maintain "balanced caseloads," they may be less able or willing to put in a large initial investment of time towards one client in a situation of urgent need, even when this would be the most effective use of the case worker's time.
