The Family Agency's Service to Children

By Elizabeth Sherman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1949

As more and more parents apply to the Family AgencyĆ¢??s services with problems that include concern about their relationship to their children, there is a need to delineate those parent-child problems that are within the agency's function and scope, from those that are the province of other specialized agencies. Practice in Family Agencies today, insofar as service to children is concerned, varies from never seeing a child in some agencies, to the inclusion of direct psychiatric treatment in others, undifferentiated from a child guidance clinic. It is important to find out what services to children are specifically germane to the family agency in order to better address parent-child problems.
