Family Relationships in Child Guidance

By Lorna Sylvester

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1950

The self has no meaning, the author writes, except what it becomes in relation to others. Therefore, casework which focuses on a child while ignoring other family members will necessarily be insufficient. The author discusses in detail a case example in order to argue that the case work job in a child guidance clinic ought to focus on the parent-child dynamic.
