Selected Trends in the Development of Social Work: Implications for Jewish Center Practice

By Florence Ray

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1959

This paper outlines developments in the social work field and what they might mean to Jewish Center workers. The author advocates for a study of Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) and any other social work settings before social work practice can be defined for the individual worker. The piece highlights such trends as the creation of the National Association of Social Workers and the changes in social work education as prompted by the efforts of The Council on Social Work Education. The piece concludes by affirming the value of the trends in the social work field, which signify a move toward an agreed-upon social work framework as well as better clarification on the field of practice and the role of the worker in a variety of social work settings.
