Comment on the Implications of the Curriculum Study for Social Casework

By Bess Dana

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

The author responds to the recommendation made in the Social Work Curriculum Study that social work students fulfill some of their educational requirements in undergraduate classes, allowing for fewer graduate classes and more direct employment opportunities. She highlights the growth of healthcare as and interdisciplinary field and the importance of social workers reacting to and helping to shape changes in this field. Such professional agility requires a broad undergraduate education rather than an overdeveloped specialty in social work.
