The Influence of Social Science on Casework Practice

By Sanford N. Sherman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1964

Social workers have much to gain from social science research as new theories and concepts are being discovered. However, too often, this social science is difficult or impossible to incorporate into actual casework. Students full of novel ideas are unable to translate this science into their work with real human beings. Therefore, social work must borrow from social science only insofar as these enriched theories can provide actual help to caseworkers in their direct personal encounters with clients.
