The Role of a Nonparticipant Observer in Drug Abuse Field Research.
Lowney, Jeremiah
Adolescence, v19 n74 p425-34 Sum 1984
Describes the development of a nonparticipant observer role in research on youthful drug use. While dual functions of research and interventionist complemented each other, they presented personal role conflicts that had to be resolved. By assuming the role of nonparticipant in the deviant behavior itself, the researcher could avoid many dilemmas. (JAC)
