Phases in the Resettlement Process and Their Significance for Case Work with New Americans

By Sidney S. Eisenberg

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

The author relates the experience of his agency, Jewish Family Service of Philadelphia, in assisting Jewish refugees from Europe. The agency has learned from experience, he explains, that the optimal approach is structured in formal phases, and acknowledges the client's own responsibility to be an active partner in resettlement. The client's readiness to move from one phase to the next shapes the role and function of the case worker, the author notes. He explains the various phases in detail, explaining common problems that impede progress from one stage to the next.
