Abstract

The purpose of this practicum is to describe the destructive use of alcohol among Southeastern Idaho Indians. This practicum is based on John and Irma Honigmann's (1) theory of· "loss of stake. " It is John and Irma Honigmann' s contention that whatever may be the social functions of drinking, and whatever the personal reasons, having a stake in society tends to induce people to conform to the norms of society with regard to drinking behavior. The three case histories in this practicum will illustrate more of what is meant by the theory of stake in society.

Description

A practicum submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Social Work, Portland State University.
