Health - A Total Community Responsibility

By Helen Lokshin, Sylvia G. Krakow

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1970

Social workers often focus on the one-to-one relationship, applying their skills to providing support to individuals in need. However, the author argues that each social worker's expertise can (and must) be applied more broadly. For example, homemaker service need not be made available only for the elderly or newborn but also for families struggling to care for a family member recently returned from the hospital. Only be taking a long view of the medical social work field will professionals be able to address increasingly complex social needs in the 1970s and beyond.
