Prejudice, Mental Health and Family Life.
Ackerman, Nathan W.
This pamphlet explores the relationship among prejudice, mental health, and family life. Prejudice is learned behavior, initially within the family unit which sets the framework for good or bad mental health as well as for the development of positive or negative attitudes. The family also determines the degree and kind of mental health of each member. The document describes the characteristics of the contemporary family, the interfamily stresses, and the ways in which destructive feelings are handled by various types of families within various kinds of social settings.
