Social case work is a young and rapidly changing profession in which differences of method and technique have been prominent. The author approaches this difficulty by a careful examination of fundamental aims. The psychological concepts of ambivalence, will and denial, relationship, movement, projection and identification, interpretation and recognition, focus, level, and casuality are defined.

Originally published in 1941.
