Marital Counselling as the Mutual Concern of Court and Family Agency

By Bernard Rosenblum

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

Today, with public concern over the future of the family so widespread, it seems that not only social workers, but psychiatrists, psychologists, anthropologists, sociologists, and even radio entertainers, are all engaged in grappling with some aspect of the problem of marital conflict. This piece looks at the issue from the perspective of a private family agency social work organization, which the author believes offers the most satisfactory kind of general help for this problem available to the public at large. The author asserts that the family agency has, of course, from its very beginning, been concerned about the problem of marital discord. However, even among social agencies, it has had no monopoly in this area of helping. What is true is that the social work field is beginning to evolve a method for being increasingly helpful in such cases, and this has been deemed to be both significant and important.
