Work With Middle-Class Adolescents and Their Families In A Family Agency

By Ruth H. Lebovitz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1962

The author discusses two case examples of working with middle-class adolescents and their parents in social casework, in order to draw general implications for models of communication in this context. The essential focus with adolescents, the author contends, is helping them to shift away from feeling withdrawn or defeated. The focus with parents, she maintains, is helping them to shift away from family values and dynamics which create stresses that propel adolescents into negative behavior.
