The Rehabilitation Workshop as a Therapeutic Medium

By Walter S. Neff

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

This piece explores the use of a rehabilitation workshop to aid vocationally disabled clients in their efforts to work. The piece identifies broad character types in the rehabilitative workshop, which includes a category of clients who have defects in motivation, those with problems of anxiety and others with problems of guilt and hostility. The piece emphasizes that the division of labor in workshop staff is important to the successful of the rehabilitation workshop. The piece concludes by asserting that chief barriers to vocational adjustment are socio-psychological in nature and that the therapeutic workshop can serve a strong role in breaking these barriers to aid the vocationally disabled in becoming a productive people.
