Modalities in the Treatment of Family Discord

By Saul Hofstein

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

Family social work, as a discipline, is concerned with strengthening familial ties. The practice of seeing individual family members separately, without any overarching therapeutic plan or communication between therapists, can weaken, rather than strengthen, these bonds. Thus, the central point for any treatment method should be the family unit. These methods should include relationship counseling focusing on parent-child or spousal relationships, or family interviews involving the entire family simultaneously.
