Differentials in Case Work with Newcomers

By Sanford N. Sherman

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

There are a number of important differences in case work with refugees and other newcomers from that with native clientele. These important differences all have an essential common characteristic and therefore can be summed up in one large essential difference. This specific distinguishing feature that the agency meets in its work with the newcomer rests in the fact that the client is a person emerging from a long, deeply felt and conditioning overseas experience of a specific character and that he comes to the agency for help while engaged in a full, also deeply meaningful and specific experience of immigration. This piece will explores the differences through this context.
