This article explores the casework process in dealing with American relatives of displaced Jewish people. With the client who comes to an agency, an abnormal process has been motivated. The author highlights that the client comes with terrific guilt and anxiety, even though the bond to his relative in many cases was very slight. The case work problem then is to help the person who is motivated and driven by conscience (and who because of his heightened fears and anxiety drives us) to become related to the reality of the relative and the situation as well as the responsibilities that will follow his migration to this country. The piece highlights the process through with the case work aids the client through an understanding of responsibility and the knowledge that helps to relieve the pressure of the clientâ??s conscience.
