Unmarried Mothers: A Study of the Attitudes of Eighteen Caseworkers From a Private Sectarian Agency Toward White Unmarried Mothers Who Keep Their Children, 1963
This study examines the attitudes of eighteen caseworkers from one sectarian agency toward white unmarried mothers who keep their children. Direct service to any type of client is offered by these caseworkers. Therefore, the case-worker did not necessarily have to work with the unmarried mother. The focus of the study is on the caseworker and her attitudes. The author sought the caseworkers' attitudes centering around their concept of the unmarried mother her age, class, home and personality factors. It examined the treatment concepts of the caseworker and how she thought improvement could be added for more effective adjustment.
