The second chapter of Part Two deals with material assistance as a component of PAP practice. Throughout the history of social work there has been a complex relationship between responses to emotional needs and responses to material needs. In the PAP, the internal and external realms are perceived as connected. Thus, practice should seek to respond simultaneously to both. The chapter presents a case study to explore the need for material assistance in working with people in poverty. In addition, based on the experience of using material assistance in PAP programs, its characteristics—immediacy and flexibility—are discussed.
