The Relation of Psychotherapy to Counseling

By John A. Rose

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1951

The author examines issues arising in connection with utilizing psychotherapeutic frameworks in social work counseling. The more psychotherapeutic counseling becomes, he notes, the less realistic it is to expect schools of social work to provide the necessary training to social workers. And if a case worker does provide quality therapy, the author asks, will not the core of case work itself be neglected? While there is much room for experimentation to define the most effective frame of reference for social work counseling, the author argues, that frame of reference must be defined, or risk being seen as synonymous with psychotherapy.
