Abstract:

This volume explores the phenomenon of personality disorganization as manifested in family life, domestic discord in particular. The author emphasizes that better diagnosis and better treatment result from the fact that one sees one's materials in terms of mental mechanisms on the one hand, and in terms of social interaction on the other--both of these projected upon a varying cultural and experiential background of the individuals involved. Specifically, the four most significant features of her standpoint and interpretation are: (1) the place of culture in personality differences; (2) the patterns of social interaction, especially those which develop in the early years of life; (3) the nature and direction of mental mechanisms as they are affected by culture and interaction; and (4) the problem of methods of analysis and that of treatment or therapy. Throughout the text, illustrative cases are presented to further enhance the reader's understanding of the subject matter. Overall, the text aims to present a central frame of orientation for studies of family adjustment from different points of view. This is in terms of husband and wife as two culturally conditioned personalities interacting with each other and with their social milieu. This volume should have a wide use as textbook and reference work for college and university courses, as a working manual for those employed in family interviewing and clinical treatment, and by all who are seeking further light upon an understanding of the factors at work in family interaction.
