Comment on Four Types of Chronic Clients

By Joseph L. Taylor

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

The author continues a conversation on chronic clients in family services, commenting on Callman Rawley's "Four Types of Chronic Clients." He distinguishes between medium-sized and large Jewish communities, noting that the latter have significant numbers of clients who are socially inept. As well, family service agencies of large Jewish communities have waiting lists that medium-sized communities lack; thus, larger communities to be more selective in their clientele. Ultimately, the author emphasizes that a professional and self-motivated cadre of social workers can far exceed the successes that have been enjoyed thus far. When social workers are called upon to respond to the growing number of chronically disabled families, they will rise to the challenge.
