Comment: Mental Health and the Family in the Current World Crisis

By Judah J. Shapiro

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1957

This piece comments on Nathan Ackerman's "Mental Health and the Family in the Current World Crisis." The commentary asserts that what is lacking in the analysis is an understanding of the motive power of the past. The author asserts that emphasis upon the individual cannot overcome the need to appreciate the force of culture in the creation of the individual. The piece concludes by emphasizing that in approaching the work of Jewish communal service it must be understood that one is dealing with a historical process.
