Personality and Individual Social Maladjustment

by Eli M. Bower - 1966

The primary problem which all these groups, small and large, face is to maintain and enhance the social and individual goals of their members. To accomplish this, groups organize and maintain institutions—organizational arrangements of living governed by rules, customs, rituals, laws, and values. In addition to the problems which each group or society has in the administration of these organizational arrangements of living, it has the job of educating its children to function within the changing boundaries of these customs, rules, and laws. Societies seek continuity of goals, values, and their way of life.
