Native Ethics and Rules of Behaviour.
Brant, Clare C.
Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, v35 n6 p534-39 Aug 1990
Based on a 24-year medical practice, observes that Native American societies maintained group unity and suppressed interpersonal conflict through behavioral norms: noninterference, noncompetitiveness, emotional restraint, and sharing. Understanding these child-rearing norms, along with traditional attitudes and nonformal teaching practices, is important for psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. (SV)
