By Mary Polk

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1959

This piece explores the historical trends and efforts to work with seriously disturbed parents whose children are in placement. The piece highlights that in the 10 years preceding its publication, there was a slow trend to create a more consistent effort to work with parents of different levels of disturbance, which resulted in new research, knowledge and increased experience. The piece presents a case study of extreme parental disturbance and the role of the Family Service Department and Child Care Department in handling the case. The piece concludes by evaluating the efforts of the case study in terms of its strengths and future application.
