Abstract

The development of adaptive behavior in a group of Jewish Displaced Persons in an UNRRA camp in Southern Italy is described. Arrival at the camp was marked by disorganized social behavior characterized by persistent nonadaptive aggression. The formation of groups and the influence of group ideologies served to modify individual modes of adjustment. The effectiveness of 2 diverse groups upon the individual behavior of members is discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
