By Robert Glass

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1968

This piece examines the important of growth and change in social work education. The author begins by highlighting the importance of three recent major changes in the field including a stronger emphasis on social factors, notable far-reaching changes in the way social agencies are offering services and a needed reexamination of the relationship between methods of service and methods by which they are thought. The piece goes on to highlight three important models of practice, which includes the social goals model, the remedial model and reciprocal model. The piece concludes by asserting the importance of being able to experiment with new approaches to methodology as well joining, discussing and debating issues that may appear to be different and contradictory.
