The Problem Child - Care and Treatment of the Problem Child

By John Slawson

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

The author discusses changes in the field of social work in service of "problem children," "delinquents" and other conceptions of problems with minors. These conceptions themselves are shifting away from punitive models, the author explains, and concepts from the field of psychoanalysis are becoming increasingly critical to the field of children's service in a social work context, as well as in institutions. Better delineation is necessary between the responsibilities of worker and therapist, respectively, he cautions.
