The "Class Struggle" Between Provision and Restoration

By Charles S. Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1966

A kind of class struggle is underway within the social work field, the author claims, between practitioners of the restorative function (seen as requiring a higher level of professional skill) and the provision of resources (theoretically the lower function). This perception ignores the complexity of particular situations, he argues, and results in a less than optimal allocation of social work skill and personnel. The author reviews alternative frameworks for analyzing social work functions.
