Recent Trends and Developments in Child Guidance

By Herschel Alt

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, December 1951

The author examines social trends affecting child guidance services, as well as trends in the field's approaches, based on his experiences at the Jewish Board of Guardians in New York. Child guidance clinics began with the primary goal of preventing delinquency, the author notes, but following the war, services have shifted to helping non-delinquent children to deal with emotional problems. He discusses changing methods and new resources the field is utilizing to address these trends, and draws broader implications and problems for Jewish communal organizations.
