Puerto Rican Pre-Adolescents: A Study of Five Boys of Puerto Rican Parents Who Were Treated at Catholic Charities Guidance Institute, Bronx Office, 1956
In the process of case study, the Social Worker makes use of knowledge from many areas of human experiences. The Social Worker deals with people who have problems that are in many ways difficult for the person to solve alone. The need for professional assistance is the best method of resolving problems. In the worker’s approach there is no special formula to cure or adjust an individual’s difficulties. To this view he brings both the practical experiences in life and the basic technical knowledge from the various sciences that deal with human behaviour. In addition, he brings skills and knowledge developed and worked through within his own profession. These skills are used to better help the client adjust to his environment. One of the major aspects of the client’s personality is his cultural heritage. “The place of socio-cultural case study is only one aspect in the total social casework process” The integration of varied cultural groups has been one of the most interesting features of American society. Through the years, New York has been a place where different ethnic groups have come to live together. The Puerto Ricans are among the latest to arrive here.
