Helping the Middle Class Delinquent to Use Casework Service
Contrary to the prevailing perception of juvenile delinquents during the early 1960s, many Jewish offenders came from "normal" middle-class homes. Often, these middle-class families sought private help for their children before finally turning to mediation at a social services agency. For families that did manage to bring themselves to the agency, the author argues that a "family-centered" approach is necessary to meaningful improvement. The popular solution of sending the child away fails to address the real familial problems that social work can help family members articulate and change.
