Mental Health and Social Change: An Annotated Bibliography.
Coelho, George V., Ed.
This annotated bibliography was prepared at the Staff Seminar on Social Change and Human Behavior held at the National Institute of Mental Health during 1970 and 1971 and was designed to serve as a working guide to the relevant mental health literature published between 1967 and 1971. The 730 abstracts included here have been categorized into five sections which illustrate the following broad areas: (1) biologically-oriented approaches: (2) behavioral and social science approaches relevant to the study of organism-environment relationships; (3) critical episodes of stress and major transitions through the life cycle; (4) group behavioral disorders in community and institutional contexts; and (5) new directions in human services, designs for cultural innovations, and social policy concerns in mental health planning. The editor hopes that these heterogenous references will provide access for research workers to explore multidisciplinary aspects of studying human behavioral adaptation in the life cycle context and in community contexts and in community contexts under conditions of rapid technological and social change.
