In considering the elements of Jewish education as used in supervision, it is important to review the character of the supervisory process. Emotional attitudes frequently block the use of Jewish factors as integrated casework tools. Thus the problems supervisors face in attempting to help workers understand and use Jewish factors are many and difficult. But if the client in a placement agency is to be served adequately, the supervisor should help the worker achieve a basic understanding of Jewish factors and their implications. Certainly it becomes clear that the supervisor in a Jewish agency, if he or she is to successfully help the worker, must possess and use such knowledge skillfully in the supervisory process and this knowledge must involved basic Jewish information and understanding.
