Which Factors Cause People to Use Illicit Drugs?

Illicit drug use and its reasons are the areas that many sociologists have not researched thoroughly. The importance of impulsivity in explaining the reason for illegal drug use is dependent on societal constructs like gender, race, age, and income according to the available literature. Assessing illicit drug use is not complete until research examines the strain theory as well as labeling theory. According to the principle of strain theory, social pressure areas such as insufficient income or inadequate education and peer influence drive the members of society to engage in crime.

“Why Can’t We All Just Get Along:” A New Norm for Managing Conflict in the Church.

ABSTRACT The Jesus Model of conflict management has important implications for the future of the church. If we can make this the standard operating practice in our congregations, then we can manage potentially destructive situations. This essay presents a definition of conflict: An expressed struggle between two interdependent parties over perceived scarce rewards, incompatible goals, or unfulfilled expectations. There are several important ideas about conflict: it is unavoidable, sometimes unresolvable, but manageable. There are three basic components of conflict: ego, stasis, and pseudo.
