The Use of Group Casework As An Ancillary Service for Clients and Foster Parents in a Child Placement Agency

By Helen Rubenstein

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

The author relates the experience of her agency, Jewish Child Care Association of New York, with group casework for foster mothers, a program requested by foster mothers themselves. She describes the program's beginnings, its operations, and the issues and problems facing its clientele, including case examples to illustrate the usefulness of discussing these issues in a group work setting. In addition to helping the foster mothers in ways that individual casework cannot, the author reports that these group discussions also help the agency to evaluate its own procedures and concepts.
