Sonn, Christopher (1995) The role of psychological sense of community in the life adjustment of 'coloured' South African immigrants. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

The aim of this thesis was to investigate how psychological sense of community (PSC) related to a group that had no choice in group membership. In the first stage of the study the PSC model was used to build a profile of a politically constructed group. The second stage of this project investigated the extent to which a PSC developed in South Africa has been transferred to Australia.
