The Role of the Psychiatrist in a Family Agency

By Norma D. Levine

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

The author discusses the use of psychiatrists in her agency, the Jewish Family and Community Service of Chicago. Psychiatrists employed by the agency serve dual roles as teachers of their specialties to the case work staff (both in groups in a seminar setting, and one-on-one), and as consultants to case work staff regarding clients. This dual focus on learning and practice allows staff psychiatrists to contribute to the entire agency's continual improvement of its capacity to understand human needs in social contexts, the author explains.
