Diagnosis--A Changing Concept

By Herbert Aptekar

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, March 1936

The author compares socio-psychological diagnosis to medical diagnosis. While medical diagnosis measures physical factors, psychological case workers must proceed much more subjectively, he explains. Treatment and diagnosis are ongoing and intertwined, rather than being separate steps.
