Discussion on Adolescent Refugees

By Goldie Goldstein

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

This piece discusses adolescent refugees in the United States. The author states that the refugee children share the common need to be taken care of for a period of time and their desire to live in a family setting and to become more integrated into American life. The piece concludes by affirming the quality of the helping process for these children, which includes an inherent flexibility, and understanding of the psychological and materiality realities of the refugee children.
