Crisis-Oriented Brief Treatment: A Side-effect of the War in Israel

By Aviva Lion, Naomi Golan

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1968

The outbreak of the 1967 Six-Day War created a tragic opportunity to apply theoretical approaches to "brief-term, crisis-oriented, crisis-focused" social casework. One of the authors relates her experience with fifty-one wounded soldiers in an Israeli hospital. Primary goals included (1) to relieve the soldier's concern for his family's situation, (2) to involve the soldier in planning for his future, and (3) to encourage him to share his feelings about his new disability. Whether by filling out loan applications, holding a cigarette, or lending a patient ear, the social worker was able to apply short-term help that was intended to avert long-term difficulties with readjustment.
