In recent years. the concept of frustration has been central in both mental hygiene and social psychology. This is rightfully so. Frustration has been defined as any kind of thwarting or blocking of the motive (4. 7. 14). Any person involved in modern day living is confronted with many types of situations which do actually block or thwart his wishes or drives. A person may be blocked because of conditions existing in the environment. because of personal inadequacies. and because of conflicting drives. Since a person is forced to face so many sources of frustration. the method that he chooses to use in an attempt to adjust has become paramount in importance.
