The Psychiatrist in a Child Placement Agency

By David Hallowitz

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

The author discusses the uses of a psychiatrist in the foster care placement operations of the Jewish Child Care Association of New York, encompassing duties in intake, direct care, and staff training. Special focus is given to the division of responsibilities between psychiatrist and social worker, and the author notes that while the psychiatrist works with the child, only the case worker deals directly with the parents.
