Drinking, Conduct Disorder, and Social Change: Navajo Experiences



Based on interviews with more than a thousand Navajo Indian men and wo men, this book examines the associations between childhood experiences and behavior and the development of alcohol dependence in adulthood. Because Navajo life has changed markedly over the past two generations, it also examines the role of urbanization and universal school in re shaping Navajo youth and considers the implications for changing patte rns of alcohol use in adulthood. In addition the book explores a wide range of timely issues such as domestic violence, factors associated w ith resistance to alcohol abuse as well as remission and recovery, the treatment and prevention of alcohol dependence, and the implications of pursuing either population-based preventive interventions or interv entions focussed on high risk individuals or groups.
