Is Group Treatment Feasible for the Small and Intermediate Jewish Family & Children's Service?

By Solomon M. Brownstein

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

The author discusses the feasibility of group treatment methods for small and intermediate Jewish Family and Children's Service agencies, using as an example his own agency, Jewish Family & Children's Service of Paterson, NJ. He finds that group work accords well with the aims and needs of small and intermediate agencies, but warns that two factors will determine whether any given agency should initiate such a program: staff interest (which may not be available everywhere because schools of social work do not yet regularly teach group work) and availability of clients.
