However, the most sustainable are ones that will remove stigmas and help to integrate the elderly into society. Many have different theories as to what type of solutions should occur. One theory is the disengagement theory, which pushes for “older people to disengage from their previous roles and to take on roles more appropriate to their physical and mental decline” (Saylor). This theory takes on a very functionalist perspective. The next theory that is suggested is the Active theory.
In this paper I am going to present a debate between two approaches developed in the course of the 90s: structural-functionalism and practice theory. What I am trying to grasp is whether these two approaches are similar and/or different, but especially understanding how they both address the study of socio-cultural systems as a whole on one hand, and the study of individual subjectivities on the other. From the names and brief descriptions of these two approaches one is drove to think that structural-functionalism, which focuses on the study of the structures in society understood as the continuing arrangements of persons in relationships defined or controlled by institutions (Radcliffe-Brown 2013:182), is concerned most on studying socio-cultural system as a whole, while practice theory, which focuses on people’s capacity to make and transform the world in which they live, is more about the study of individual subjectivities. But the relation of these two approaches is actually more complicated than that. Let’s see why.
Symbolic Interactionism George Mead (1863-1931) George Herbert Mead is one of the key developers of the symbolic interactionism. This is a micro-level perspective based on self and society. It states that human behavior is influenced by meanings and definitions that are created through interactions with others in society. This is the ongoing use of a language and gestures in suspense to how the other will react in a conversation. Within the George Mead’s theory of Mind, Self and Society, he said that the self is made up of 2 components: the “me” represents expectations, attitudes and learnt behaviors of others in society.
Social influence can take different forms. Majority and minority influence research has studied how groups influence the attitudes and behaviours within society of individuals and groups while also promoting an ingroup and outgroup attitude that comes from Social Identity Theory (Tajfel & Turner, 1979). Majority influence is a normative influence where people ‘conform’ to the majority (Cialdini and Goldstein, 2004) attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours to group norms and it has the power to reward or punish. Minority influence occurs when an individual or small group reject the majority norm (Cook, 2011) and seek change by making the majority reconsider their views with new concepts and ideas, which is an example of informational influence. These
According to Novant Health specific health benefits of social interactions include potentially reduced risk for Alzheimer 's disease, Lower blood pressure and reduced risk for mental health issues such as depression. The resident is already inadequate to take care of their own needs, so it is very important to maintain their social interactions and monitor them

National Perspective Nationally countries should take into consideration this very important issue and take concrete steps to make a better life for old people. They should make government old age homes providing proper services and create a law of the old people to be provided with a certain sum of money by either government or by his/her children so that they could manage a peaceful retired life. Global Perspective Globally all countries should make steps to make a suitable and worthy solution to this problem and work together to provide proper lifestyle to old people of the
The transitional phase that follows, terminates the existing structure and creates the possibility for a new one. The primary tasks of every transitional period is to reappraise the existing structure, to explore possibilities for change in the self and the world, and to move toward commitment to the crucial choices that form the basis for a new life structure in the ensuing period. Levinson divides adulthood development into stages or phases. The first stage in Levinson’s theory is called the early adult transition (ages 17-22). The problem at this stage is to develop a sense of independence by separating from one’s family and trying out new things and the other different lifestyles.
1. Introduction The aim of the report is to look into the major trends in labour force today. The report is divided into three main categories.
