Charity and Social Service: An Analysis of the Role of the Christian Virtue of Charity in the Process of Relationship, as Seen in Casework, Group Work, and Community Organization
Background of the Study. Social workers have long been interested in the process of relationship. Although it has held various titles such as friendship, rapport, empathy or transference, it has been universally accepted as a necessary medium of service. This concept is for Social Work a symbol of its revolt against that inhuman method of Welfare services known as the "Poor Law" system. Until very recently, however, the profession has not produced a clear and extensive statement in regard to this accepted practice. "The Casework Relationship" has provided such a statement and has thus performed an important, constructive service to Social Work. With this analysis accomplished, valuable new paths of research are opened.
