An Experimental Use of the Temporary Home

By Esther S Brandzel, Leona H. Moss, Myra Tieder, Ruth Vogel

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

The authors detail considerations involved in moving young children from the beginning of the foster placement process to placement with a long-term foster family, focusing on the middle stages of adjusting to the role of the social worker in the child's life and adjustment to the temporary foster home and temporary foster parents. They discuss the roles of parent, child, worker and foster parent; typical parent doubts and decisions; the child's initial visits to the agency; preparations for placement; separation; the child's feelings during the process; and the transition process.
