Some Aspects of the Case Work- Group Work Process

By David Weiss

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1948

This piece attempts to synthesize some of the common and differing aspects of the case work and the group work process as enabling processes by which each field serves its respective client or group member. The author asserts that one must be aware of the comparable though not identical purposes which case workers and group workers share, however, it is natural for the trained and perceptive group worker to wonder whether he or she can combine both methods in his job. The piece also highlights that there are conscious and actual factors in the use of the casework method. The piece concludes by asserting that discussion of this topic seems to indicate that caseworkers and group workers may find more and more common ground in joining cooperatively to utilize the distinct but comparable methods each possesses. The piece adds that the possibilities of a case work-group work approach in working with people outside of military or hospital settings seem to be many and worthwhile.
