Sectarian Commitment and Professional Purpose in Social Work Practice
Social workers in Jewish agencies are often faced with a conflict between the needs of the individual client and the collective interest of the Jewish group. This conflict will sometimes involve the social worker's complex negotiation of client-counselor relationships. While the social worker does run the risk of subordinating the client's individual needs to those of the Jewish group and Jewish culture, a social worker in a Jewish agency should represent both social work values and principles and those of the Jewish group, while providing a non-judgmental environment in which the social worker facilitates the client's choice to access the agency's sectarian agenda.
