The Layman and the Professional

By Bertram H. Gold

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1959

The author examines the relationship between laypeople and professionals in social service organizations, and the development of that relationship. While in the past the dynamic has been one either of dominance by one element over the other, or of an unrealistic expectation of undifferentiated partnership, the author contends that the field has come to understand that each element brings a set of comparative strengths, and that the allocation of duties ought to reflect the skillset of both. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. By Sanford Sherman, v.35, no.4, June 1959, p.366-372.
