needed for a social work position.
Erickson took his graduate
training, consisting of 48 credit
hours and a thesis, at the Univer-
sity Institute of Social Work, lo-
cated in the Rackham Building in
Detroit. Courses there included
case work, mental hygiene, and.
psychiatric information.j
He did his field work, part of
the requirment for a graduate de-
gree, at the Children's Center in
Detroit, a clinic for the study and
treatment of educational, person-
ality and conduct problems of
'Young Profession'
"Social work is a young, grow-
ing profession, and opportunities
in the field for both men and wom-
en are unlimited," he stated. "The
skilled, well-trained social worker
is always in demand, and there is
ample freedom to advance to ex-
ecutive positions. For men there
are administrative jobs involving
responsibility for social planning.
while women more often prefer di-
rect work with clients." -
Differences Pointed Outl
Miss Jane Quirk, adoption con-
sultant in the infant adoption de-
partment of the Michigan Chil-
dren's Institute, pointed out the
vast difference between "a lay per-
son doing good' and a profession-
ally trained social worker giving
constructive help."
"Social work requires a knowl-
edge, based on training and expe-
rience, of human emotions in-
volved in the complex personal re-!
lations of family life," Miss Quirk
said. "With professional training
one can be of real constructive
service to those seeking help."
At the Michigan Children's In-
stitute, the state agency providing
foster home care for dependent
and neglected children, Miss
Quirk's work is concerned with in-
terviewing and getting to know
adoptive applicants. Prc 3pective
adoptive parents come to the In-
stitute in search of a. child and
want to talk to "someone who will
understand their voiced and un-
voiced desires for a child," she

"This may sound simple," she
added, "but it takes an ability to
understand people, their personali-
ties and backgrounds, as well as
their ability to become adoptive
parents. It also takes an under-
standing of children, their physi-
cal and mental development, the
meaning of past, present or future
experiences to them and their
heritage, all in terms of what
they will need to make them hap-
py people."
Older Children
The majority of the children
under the Institute's care are old-
er ones who have been committed
by court because their homes
did not provide the basic security
necessary for their happiness. For
some of these adoption plans are
made; for others, permanent
boarding plans are more advisoble.
Miss Quirk, like Erickson. grad-
uated from the University with a
major in sociology, in 1938. In-
quiring into the requirements for
a social work position, she learned
that it was necessary to receive
training in a graduate school.
Attended Chicago School
She attended the graduate
school of Social Service Admin-
istration in Chicago, taking courses
similar to those Erickson took in
Detroit. Her field work require-
ments were fulfilled by work in a
district office of the Chicago Wel-
fare Administration. Miss Quirk
also did field work at the Illinois
Children's Home and Aid Society.
Both Miss Quirk and Erickson.
as well as the other members of
the county chapter of the Ameri-
can Association of Social Workers,
I will be present to answer questions
about social work at an informal
get-together from 3:30 to 5:30
p.m. Wednesday in the Main Li-
brary Room of Lane Hall.
