Interrelated Processes in Parent-Child Counseling

By Saul Hofstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1949

The author provides an in-depth analysis of the parent-child counseling process. Hofstein defines this process, describes its aims, and explains its most essential problem. Namely, mother, father, and child must be engaged in terms of their uniqueness, yet at the same time, they must be involved in an interrelated process so that all family members can move together and can leave the agency at the same time. Furthermore, the author discusses the importance of the set time structure within the parent-child counseling process, and in the second portion of the paper, delves into the four periods of counseling, i.e., intake, beginning, middle, and ending, by utilizing the example of a family who had recently participated in the counseling process at the author's agency.
