Cooperative Competencies and the Prevention and Treatment of Drug Abuse.
Johnson, David W.
There is no aspect of human experience or human socialization more important than cooperation with others. The person's ability to engage in sustained cooperative endeavors depends upon a series of competencies. Successful cooperation depends upon the person having an integrated and coherent identity, directionality, a clear preception of interdependence, trust, and ability to accept the perspective of others. Persons who are not socialized into these competencies are likely to engage in abusive drug use patterns and to be unable to solve interpersonal problems. Drug abuse prevention and treatment programs need a model such as the one presented here to coordinate the development, implementation, and evaluation of programs aimed at increasing the quality of interpersonal relationships in a participant's life.
