Stress (Psychology), Indians of North America




The subject of this paper is an extension of the work done Holmes and Rahe on the development of the Social Readjustment Rating Scale or SRRS and of the study, “Individual Perception of Stressful Life Events: A Comparison of Native Americans, Rural, and Urban Samples,” conducted by Dr. Liberman and Joel Frank. This study will compare those two samples with a sample of a selected Pacific Northwest Indian tribe served by an Indian Health Service facility.

“The Stressful Life Events: A Comparative Study of Native American and Urban Samples” study is a singular component of a total effort on the part the Indian Health Service, Portland Area Office, to assess the probability and severity of functional impairment of the Indian people living on the Yakima Indian Reservation in the State of Washington, with the additional intent of facilitating planning and allocation.
