Group Work with Multiple Sclerotic Adults in a Jewish Community Center

By Susan Tomson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1971

The author relates her experience of group work with adults with Multiple Sclerosis. Her first-hand accounts relate the use of art as a means of expression, the use of anger as a motivational tool, and the significant impact that group members were able to have on one another. As well, she shares some of the important group work done with spouses of Multiple Sclerotic adults, noting that a weekly (rather than monthly) meeting would have been necessary for maximum effect. The Jewish Community Center provided a welcoming atmosphere for this group and could serve as the home for additional similar programs.
