Summary
"Professional education for social work has been handicapped, throughout its thirty-three years' history, by a lack of available teaching material. In the absence of texts teachers have placed their chief reliance, in dealing with the more technical aspects of social work, on case records and material derived from them. Usually they have secured such material as a result of their own search through the records of social agencies. Texts and treatises in this field are now increasing in number, but the case record remains an equally important resource for classroom work; schools of social work have discovered, like schools of law and medicine before them, that for certain purposes case material has greater value than texts. Case records have been made available for teaching purposes in the face of various difficulties. Records do not tell the whole story of case work; in the nature of things they cannot do so. Their inadequacy becomes more apparent as the importance of the relation between worker and client is more clearly recognized, for of all the aspects of case work, the dynamics of this personal relation is the most difficult to record. Despite such difficulties, beginnings have been made in the publication of records for teaching use. The need, however, is far from being met. New knowledge, new methods, and new standards develop so rapidly that records quickly lose current value. Social case work has achieved a diversity which makes a corresponding diversity in teaching material indispensable. The continuous publication of case records taken from different types of social agencies is, therefore, highly desirable. Yet the present volume of these records as teaching documents were compiled primarily to serve the purpose of the clinic in the treatment of children, not primarily for research or for teaching. These records, as they stand, should be intelligible to any social worker, and any teacher of social case work should find in them useful material for teaching"--Foreword.
