Horwitz, Allan
Social Forces, 56, 1, 86-105, Sep 77
Compares the power of cultural variables and structural variables to predict the entry into psychiatric treatment. Uses the concept of the social network to show that structural relationships, in addition to the culture of the different social classes, are important predictors of psychiatric labels and referrals, and severity and duration of symptoms.
