New Trends in Social Group Work: Implications for Jewish Community Centers
By Louis Lowy
In the early 1960s, social group work is establishing itself as a method of social work rather than merely a field of study. The author argues that, since Jewish centers are primarily social work agencies, they must incorporate skilled group work into their services. The executive director of Jewish centers should be a trained social worker who is ready to conduct group work when necessary. As well, the Jewish center should hire more social work professionals and should value this professional training over Jewish expertise. Overall, Jewish centers should more rigorously commit themselves to professional excellence, especially in the field of social work.
