Community Implications of Psychiatric Service in Social Agencies

By Esther Beckenstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, December 1951

The author examines the use of the psychiatrist in social agencies from the point of view of central planning agencies, and the field of communal organization in general, identifying common arrangements between agencies, hospitals and practitioners, and highlighting likely points of disagreement or confusion. The community agency or Federation has a large stake in the development of improved standards of service through the use of psychiatrists, the author contends.
