Social Work Practices in the Present Depression

By Hortense Seidenman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

The discussion group which met to consider social work practices in the present depression soon found itself involved, not only in a consideration of present day techniques practiced in social work, but also in a re-evaluation of their own philosophical outlook in relation to current economic and political problems. The general topics covered at that meeting were the effect of depression on family life, public and private social work and the responsibility of social work to client and community.
