The Impact of Soviet Jewish Culture on the Problem-Solving Process

By Nina Dorf

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1979

The author examines some of the effects of Soviet cultural upbringing on how Soviet Jewish immigrants respond to assistance from American social workers, basing her observations on first-hand field experience. She finds that most Russian immigrants tend to be skeptical of help relationships, distrustful of authority figures, and wary of communicating openly about problems. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.56 no.1, Fall 1979.
