The Case Work Process in Parent-Child Problems

By Callman Rawley, Alfred Neumann

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1947

In parent-child problems, we have found it necessary in the very first interview to demonstrate a capacity to be helpful. This means, among other things, a generally energetic tackling of a client's problem, an ability to establish confidence in the first interview, seeing beyond what the client sees in his situation and getting hold of a focus in the problem in relation to which he can continue his contact. This concrete evidence of something started and of the worker's potential helpfulness is a positive force exerted against the many natural pulls the client has against involving himself and is a support against yielding to them and pulling out. This piece focuses on understanding the casework process as relates to these issues.
