A Child Guidance Worker in a Jewish Agency Takes Stock of Himself

By Hyman Grossbard, Mary E. Hurlbutt, Samuel C. Kohs

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1945

In this article, which is followed by two responses, Grossbard explores questions related to the functions (and requirements) of Jewish content in child guidance social work and therapeutic services within Jewish social service agencies. He explores problems related to culture, sub-culture and cultural conflicts in Jewish American contexts. Hurlbutt discusses the article, expressing reservations about Grossbard's presentation of the issues. Kohs asks: what is more important in this context, the technique or the practitioner ("the man")?
