A Case Work-Group Work Approach to the Treatment of War Neuroses

By Victor Rubenstein, Abraham Novick

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

The authors describe a coordinated case work group approach to short-term treatment in a military setting, which was offered to clients described as "mild" or "moderately severe" "psychoneurotic casualties" -- soldiers suffering emotional disturbances when returning home from World War II. They examine common psychological patterns in these cases, and challenges in the transition from civilian to army life. The authors provide detailed descriptions of individual and group dynamics during treatment.
