The Vocational Counselor and Family Caseworker as Joint Leaders in a Group Counseling Program

By Bernard Berger, William G. Vine

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1970

There is a significant overlap in the goals of the Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) and Jewish Family and Child Service (JF&CS) of Toronto, but there exists a troubling lack of cooperation and understanding between their respective staffs. In order to provide comprehensive service to their clients and to improve relations between the agencies, JVS and JF&CS inaugurated a group counseling program in which a worker from each agency would facilitate a series of sessions with ten young men and women. This collaboration resulted in effective service being provided to clients, improved appreciation for the distinctiveness of these two agencies, and greater cooperation among their workers (even those who did not participate in the program). Such joint enterprises are recommended for social work agencies all across North America.
