A Workshop on Psychiatrist and Social Worker in a Medical Setting

By Gloria Auerhan

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

This article summarizes a workshop session from the National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare (renamed the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service by the time this issue was printed) in Atlantic City, NJ, on May 20, 1951, on the topic of the roles and functions of social workers and psychiatrists in hospital and other medical care settings. The author summarizes presenters' main arguments, as well as case examples provided, and some matters of general consensus that emerged from the group discussion. Among these agreements were: that additional emphasis on the preventative end of mental illness is warranted; that general hospitals need to expand psychiatric services; and that hospitals and social service agencies should try better to coordinate their services.
