Abstract

This study explores the meanings associated with the term 'self-help'in the general Arab population in Israel. It compares these associated meanings across various groups created by several demographic variables. The Arab population in Israel numbers nearly one million, comprising 18% of the total population of the state. The study used a random sample of 250 participants, representative of the general Arab population in Israel. Data was collected in a telephone survey which lasted 3-7 minutes. Three themes surfaced as the most prevalent meanings associated with the concept 'self-help': the individual meaning, which refers to one's ability to solve one's own problems and to rely on one's own strengths and resources; helping the 'other'; and helping the needy. Significant differences in the associated meanings of the self-help concept related to level of education, marital status, and whether therespondent had heard of the self-help concept. The significance of the findings is discussed within several frames of reference. First, they are examined within the context of a particular minority culture which is constantly interacting with Israeli Jewish cultural values and is undergoing a change from traditional systems of values to modern Western ones. Second, the universal and particular attributes of the self-help phenomenon are outlined. Third, the initial developmental stagesof self-help organizations within the Arab population living in Israel are discussed.
