Counseling with Jewish Soldiers

By Saul Hofstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1946

The author discusses unique considerations for Jewish social workers counseling Jewish members of the US armed forces. These include the challenges of difference within a military social context that stresses homogeneity, as well as the challenge for the Jewish social worker to preserve professional objectivity instead of identifying with the Jewish soldier who is a client. Case examples are provided to illustrate these challenges.
