Social Work Education in Israel: An Analysis and Some Suggestions

By Harris Chaiklin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1982

Continued imitation of the content and pattern of American social work education has constrained Israelis from striking out on their own and developing on Israeli social work. It is time for Israelis to get over the self-hate implied in constant efforts to show the Americans that they can do the same thing better. It is equally time for Americans to stop telling Israelis how to do it. Their two attitudes together seem to promote a circle of competition which leaves the needs of the students and the country out. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 59:1.
