The author discusses the feasibility of group treatment methods for small and intermediate Jewish Family and Children's Service agencies, using as an example his own agency, Jewish Family & Children's Service of Paterson, NJ. He finds that group work accords well with the aims and needs of small and intermediate agencies, but warns that two factors will determine whether any given agency should initiate such a program: staff interest (which may not be available everywhere because schools of social work do not yet regularly teach group work) and availability of clients.
