Maturity in Social Functioning; The Developmental Goal of Group Work

By Emanuel Tropp

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1966

This piece looks at the enhancement of social function as part of social work theory. The author explores the different avenues of enhancement, which include community organization, group work and casework. The author specifically looks at issues of defining maturity within the context of enhancement and from a clinical context where the author notes that there isn't much information to clearly define it. The author goes on to identify criteria for social maturity. The author concludes by identifying and highlight expectations for maturity and how the schemes he presented can be useful for group work practices.
