Responding to Solomon M. Brownstein's "Is Group Treatment Feasible for the Small and Intermediate Jewish Family & Children's Service?" which appears directly before this piece in the same issue, the author cautions that administrative issues affected by agency size are not the only relevant concern when deciding whether or not to implement group work. Technique also makes the difference between success and failure, the author argues, whether the agency serves a tiny population or a population of a million. No matter an agency's size, it must challenge its staff to develop skilled technique, and adapt its methods to fit the needs of its particular clientele.
