The Social Agency and Psychiatric Service

By John A. Rose

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

The author examines difficulties in integrating psychiatrists into social work agencies, including many misunderstandings on each side about the nature and function of the other's work. When agencies and psychiatrists can find truly collaborative relationships, the author argues, there is much to be gained, but this positive scenario requires much work on both sides to arrive at comfortable levels of communication, and comfortable models of authority.
