The Adolescent Immigrant

By Deborah S. Portnoy

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

The majority of Jewish casework agencies have now had experience with adolescent immigrant populations due to the recent events of the war. At this point, the concerns of agencies and practitioners seem to take on a special character. Agencies have been wondering if their program, each with its specialized approach and with the skills, which they have built, is adequate to meet the problem. Recent experiences suggest that with greater understanding of these children it becomes possible to indicate more exactly the kinds of programs, which seem to be needed.
