New York City Youth Board Referrals to a Child Guidance Clinic: A Study of Five Cases That Resisted Psychiatric Treatment at the Catholic Charities Guidance Institute, Archdiocese of New York, 1956-1957
A Youth Board publication read by the writer last year stated that the New York City Youth Board had been under way for nearly eleven years and its assigned area of work had been confined to that hard core of casework and group work need which had been the most marked gap in community services in the city. It had determined upon a plan that had fostered a common concern of all social agencies in this problem area and it had entered into a contractual relationship with voluntary and public organizations so that they were not only made a party to this common concern, but were encouraged to devote a portion of their resources to filling this gap. Contracting with the going agencies had naturally involved a considerable reexamination of their services, qualitatively and quantitatively, and this had served a constructive purpose for the agencies themselves as well as for the community. The article went on to state that Youth Board had given great impetus to the realization that in both casework and group work there were those persons in need of services who just would not come in for these services.
