The contributors to this volume examine ′social problem′ behaviours as attempts to cope with various kinds of stressful situations. They approach these behaviours, not simply as problems, but rather as life-sustaining and even life-enhancing, activities for individuals who are unable to cope with the stresses and strains of their lives. The articles included explore theoretical issues and theories as well as a range of specific alternative behaviours, and will be of particular interest to psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists, sociologists, and all students of deviant behaviour.
