The Milieu of Modified Group Homes: Experiences in Residential Treatment of Adolescent Girls

By Louise H. Greenberg

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

This piece explores the creation of residential apartment units designed to meet the needs of emotionally disturbed children who require social services and were unable to remain in their homes. The piece elaborates on the system within the residential units where the children were seen by caseworkers several times of week with intense psychiatric supervision. The piece presents two brief cases studies of young girls who entered the unit. The piece finds that the residential apartment units have the capacity to support girls with a range of emotional issues but the current setting is not sufficient enough to help the most extreme situations and that other facilities are needed to tackle these issues.
