The author defends the practice of clinical casework against claims that it is too costly and is unproven in effectiveness. He acknowledges that casework is not a panacaea, and that new methods must be explored, but he also asserts that clinical practice based on clear Jewish identity and knowledge still has a vital and important role in preventing the ultimate breakdown in Jewish family life.
