The Application Form: Implications of its Use for Client and Agency

By Callman Rawley, Florence Silverblatt, Elizabeth K. Radinsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1945

In this article, which is followed by two responses, Silverblatt examines functions of the application form in social service contexts beyond the simple managerial record-keeping function. For example, she notes, application forms can be used to clarify the beginning point of a new process, serve as the basis of interviews, or document case development. Radinsky discusses these observations, based on the experiences of her agency, the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of Brooklyn. Rawley discusses the issue further, using a case example.
