Teaching How to Focus a Problem in Family Counseling

By Celia Brody

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1949

The function of the family-counseling agency determines the goal and content of the supervisory process and of the helping process, which it is its responsibility to teach. The point at which the supervisor's responsibility to teach agency function converges with the worker's necessity to come to grips with it creates a true focal point for learning. As the worker experiences the supervisor's understanding of her as a person and the way in which she employs this understanding in order to fulfill agency purpose, the worker will be enabled to integrate her understanding of the client with her role in being there for him.
