Discussion of Todd Simon's Paper

By Virginia C. Frank

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1949

Responding to Todd Simon's article, "Interpreting Agency Program as an essential of Agency Function," Virginia Frank concedes that there is much public confusion about the field of social work, but maintains that all factors must be considered and examined while assessing the current state of social work. To the author, Simon's argument pins all of social work's ills on its failure to adequately clarify to the public its contribution to society. Ultimately, Frank believes that the situation is not as bleak or as "devastating" as the portrait painted by Simon within his article.
