M1. Use two sociological perspectives to explain different concepts of health.
In this assignment I am going to explain the different concepts of health and what effects individuals health by using two sociological perspectives. The two sociological perspectives that I am going to explain are Marxism and feminism.
Marxism was known as a conflict model, as it is a structuralise model. It was first developed by Karl Marx (1818-83). Karl Marx also thought that individual behaviour was shaped by society but he believed that it was the economic system that defined society and peoples place within it. Marx held the view that in the industrial society of his time there were two social classes: * The bourgeoisie or capitalists-the small powerful group who owned the factories and other places of employment. * The proletariat which is a much larger, poorer group of workers- the people of hands that the bourgeoisie employed.
Marx’s view was that these two social class groups would always be in conflict, the owners of the factories, land and offices would want a high profit and the employees would want higher wages that would eat into the profits. So this is why Marxism is often called the conflict model. Marx thought that this conflict would lead to revolution. There was an unequal relationship between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat and conflict was inherent in the economic system.
Marx believed there were two social classes; the capitalists and the proletariat. The proletariat group were made up to superior powerful individuals who worked in the capitalists business of employment.
Feminist sociology is a conflict theory and theoretical perspective which observes gender in its relation to power, both at the level of face-to-face interaction and reflexivity within a social structure at large. Focuses include sexual orientation, race, economic…...

This unit aims to explain the reasons people do the things they do when it comes to health and wellbeing. The mind and the body are interlinked, e.g. stress caused by daily hassles or lifestyle can have a detrimental effect on the body’s immune system and can lead to serious illness. Psychologists have given us many ways to explain human behaviour and this unit is designed to enable learners to apply what they have learnt to their own practice; from helping people overcome emotional problems to dealing with challenging behaviours. The knowledge and understanding gained throughout the unit will benefit all those who work with others, be it people who use services, their friends and family, and other professionals. A wide range of perspectives is covered which can then be applied to many different health and social care settings. The behaviourists and social learning theorists can help to explain how health related behaviours are learnt as well as ways to teach new behaviours to people who use services. The humanists, on the other hand, provide us with a set of guidelines for working......

Unit 4 Health and Social Care M1 and D1

...Discuss the nature-nurture debate in relation to the development of the individual (M1) & Evaluate how nature and nurture may affect the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of two stages of the development of the individual (D1). Nature can be loosely defined as genetic inheritance or the genetic makeup (the information encoded in your genes) which a person inherits from both parents at the time of conception and carries throughout life. Several things in an individual genetically inherits include; ranging from gender, eye colour, risks for certain diseases and exceptional talents to height. The concept of nature thus refers to biologically inherited tendencies and abilities that people have and which may get revealed later on as they grow up. Nurture can be defined as the different environmental factors to which a person is subjected from birth to death. There are many environmental factors. They include both physical environments and social environments. Some theorists believe that people behave as they do according to genetic predispositions or even because of ‘animal instincts.’ This is known as the ‘nature’ theory of human behaviour. Other theorists believe that people think and behave in certain ways because they are taught to do so. This is known as the ‘nurture’ theory of human behaviour. (www.yourenglishlessons.wordpress.com) Nature refers to the inherited (genetic) characteristics and tendencies that influence development. Some......

... M1 Introduction In this assignment I will be describing the effects on service users based on different types of discrimination such as indirect, direct, institutional and individual. Marginalisation Marginalisation or Social Exclusion occurs when social groups are discriminated against for example this could be because of their race, religion, age or disability. This means that entire communities of people are blocked or denied full access to various rights, resources or opportunities that are normally available to people of a different group. Disabled Children are a prime example of marginalisation in schools and social care. Many disabled children fail to reach their full potential because the often experience discrimination, exclusion and sometimes even violence. Disabled children are often perceive as ‘lacking’ and will not receive the same level of education as ‘normal’ children. Physical access to transport to join in with sports and leisure activities are limited so many disabled children are excluded from these. The support system is complicated and there are gaps in provision particularly with support of the transition between childhood to adulthood. Lastly Bullying is often accepted as inevitable when disabled children are perceived as vulnerable. Some children do however stand up to bullies and refuse to be limited by labels that are imposed upon them. Indirect Discrimination Indirect Discrimination occurs when a healthcare or care provider has a practice,......

...they are aware of the things that I am doing so that they know what I should be working on as they are doing the same thing as me. A negative affect that they have on my learning is occasionally we spend a whole lesson going off topic and talking about what happened on our weekends which is something that can be discussed on the lunch breaks rather than the all important lessons. Furthermore another influence on my learning is my health. Health problems can influence my learning in different ways such as be tiredness, physical illness, or mental illness. Health issues could motivate me to work since it might make me more determined to show other people that being ill whether physically or mentally is not an answer for me to not do my work which could push me to excel more with my work than I would do usually. Health problems have a positive influence on me as if I am ill, I will most likely be at home which is where I get most of my work done well as I find doing coursework at college difficult due to noise and the distractions around me. Health problems can have a negative effect on me since if I was very physically ill, I would not have the energy to be able to do coursework. My learning style is a pragmatist since I like to get feedback from others about my work, I like to experiment and try things out and I would rather get on with tasks rather than talk about. The good learning situations from being a pragmatist is I have a clear link between thinking and what......

...P1: Behaviourist Approach. An introduction into this perspective is that it studies how conditioning, reinforcement and social learning influence behaviour. It does this through laboratory experiments and observations. In witch they use animals and humans. It is a scientific approach to measure behaviour and investigate how behaviour is learned. They argue that the environment shapes behaviour. Also argued that genetics and cognition are deemed as unimportant in determining behaviours. There are three main theories to this perspective which are: Classical conditioning Operant conditioning Social learning. Classical conditioning: Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) was working with dogs to investigate their digestive systems; he noticed that one dog began to salivate when Pavlov assistant entered the room with food. Pavlov thought the dog had learned to associate the assistant with food. This meaning food automatically lead to response of salivation, this is called an unconditioned response. The food was the unconditioned stimulus. As the production of saliva was automatic and not learnt. With this, an unconditioned stimulus leads to an unconditioned response. Pavlov then introduced a bell at feeding time, the bell was a conditioned response as the dog then produced saliva on the bell ringing as the dog associated the bell with feeding time. This happened over several trails and then the dog learned this. Eventually it began to salivate when only the bell was rung and no food......

Care values and the code of practice are designed to try and help service users to feel safer in the environment that they live in and they should also feel valued and respected. Values such as trust and confidence are very important as the service user needs to be able to trust the person that they are communication with/taking help from. If they do not have trust then they will feel depressed and lonely as they cannot talk to anybody for reassurance about things. For instance, an elderly person needs to have trust in its nurse as they are the ones who look after them. This makes a healthy and strong relationship between them. Care workers are also not allowed to abuse, discriminate or neglect or exploit service users or colleagues. By doing this it shows how the service users have respect towards their patient and other colleagues, it also allows privacy which is a basic human right and as the person will not be exposed. This helps the patient to feel more secure and safe due to them knowing no harm will come their way. Care workers have to respect the patient and ensure no harm occurs. By doing this it ensures that the patient is...

...Unit 6 Personal and professional development in health and social care. P1: Explains the key influences on the personal learning processes of individuals. Kinaesthetic Kinaesthetic learning is a style in which a person learns through doing. It can be things such as sports, experimentation and drama opposed to listening to someone give a lecture or watching someone perform a demonstration. The best way for a kinaesthetic learner to take in information is by activities that involve touching, feeling, holding, doing, and practical experiences. Kinaesthetic learners often fidget, move their legs a lot or tap their feet, which can then lead them to be labelled as hyperactive. Also, they can be good in active jobs such as actors, musician, dancer or athletes and work well with their hands. They may be good at repairing work, sculpting, art, or working with various tools. Auditory Auditory learning is a style in which a person learns by listening. Its mainly listening to someone talk in lectures, speeches, and oral sessions although they must be able to hear exactly what is being said to understand completely. They have difficulty understanding instructions that are written. Because auditory learners have brilliant listening skills, the best career choices for them would be along the lines of a pathologist, disc jockey (DJ), and musician Visual Visual learners work best by seeing things, over hearing someone talk about them or creating something. Someone that is a visual......

...P1&P2: explain the principal sociological perspectives and explain the different approaches to health and ill health. Functionalist Perspective and the approach to Health: The functionalist perspective was published in 1951 by Talcott Parsons which studied the social structure as a whole and the ways in which it functions. This view promotes the social solidarity and value consensus; this is the belief that each person should share the same basic norms and values within society. Therefore, this would make each society run smoothly. Functionalists believe strongly that each individual has an equal opportunity of success within their life, that the nuclear family is a vital concept as it provides the most suitable environment for children to be raised within and believe if an individual has ill health that it is there responsibility to work with health professionals to re-gain good health status. This perspective has been widely criticised by individuals as it is believed that they do not value the diversity within a society. The functionalist approach to health is identified through the relationship shared between an individual who is sick and the whole of society. Talcott Parsons strongly believed that for a society to run smoothly all individuals must be free of ill health and that ‘medicine serves the wellbeing of society as a whole’. Individuals in which believe the functionalist perspective believe that having a sick role in society is classed as an act of......

...you just want to give up on life. So you may choose a life of crime or violence, affecting those around you as well as yourself because you are trying to fit in with those around you. Restricted opportunities – All types of discrimination may lead to a person not being able to use health and social provision and this can lead to poor life choices and poor health. The discrimination may be by individuals, health organisations or even the government. Negative behaviour – Negative behaviour, aggression or crime can be partly caused by discrimination. Living in poverty and experiencing discrimination can affect an individual’s behaviour. For example, a carer in a care home shouting at an elderly resident all the time as he is slower than she wants him to be. Loss of rights – All organisations have to comply with the Human Rights Act. However, there are some cases where the act can work in different ways. Cases when a person’s rights have been removed by force or power. Statutory powers are used when a child is taken away from abusive parents. Although the parents’ rights are being affected, the child’s right to health and safety comes first even if the parents object. Long and short term effects (M1): Marginalisation Long term positive: The patient may be noticed more by other patients and this would show that they are different making them more accepted. This may interest people as being different is what makes people irreplaceable. The patient could campaign for change......
