This article examines the tendency to overlook the father as a client in the case of child welfare workers. The author recognizes this as a widespread phenomenon and examines the Israeli welfare system as a particular example. He cites many reasons for this trend, ranging from the organization and demographic make-up of the social work profession to stereotypes about fathers and a lack of knowledge about ethnic groups.
