Use of Parents' Groups in a Residential Treatment Center

By Lorraine Siegel

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

The author describes the efforts of her organization, a semi-rural residential treatment center for youth, to establish group treatment sessions for parents, in order to offer them a system of mutual support, help them deal with feelings about their children's placement, understand their children's needs and behaviors, and plan for the future. The author cites case examples to illustrate the benefits of the group approach for parents of institutionalized youth.
