The Treatment of a Type of Chronically Rejected Child

By Annette Jacobsohn

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1963

The author discusses social casework treatment of families in which the mother has "rejected" a child from birth, with rejection referring not to maltreatment only, but rather to a wish to have absolutely nothing to do with the particular child. She discusses some psychological underpinnings of these mothers' feelings, effects on the children, and effective treatment methods for the mothers in question, the children in question, and the fathers in these families.
