Case Work in Prisons

By Herman Rikelman

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

Treatment of prisoners in penal institutions has been a serious problem to penologists and those interested in crime for many years. Despite many changes and improvements in the physical care of prisoners, the development of educational and vocational programs, the introduction of classification clinics and shops with modern equipment, a well-developed psychiatric service is missing in most of the penal institutions. The piece highlights the experiences of the Adult Welfare Department of the Jewish Board of Guardians in prison casework.
