    5. 3.2 The Sociology of the Family Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    6. What is a “Family”? • The family unit in terms of applied sociology is a micro level society, or the smallest structure of society within our vast world of societies. • It consists of more than one person that forms the most intimate and personal of groups. Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    7. What is a “Family”? • An institution for breeding and raising kids? • Any group of persons with ties of kinship, ie, blood or marriage • Any household comprising interdependent residents • Any group or couple in which members provide for or rely on others financially, emotionally or both • Overall, “family” is a symbolic term- it does not refer to a concrete phenomenon. – Gay Family ?? Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    8. Different view regarding the family • Functionalistic perspective • Family ecology perspective • Development perspective • Feminist and conflict perspective Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    9. 1. The Functionalist View of Family • “Families” evolve to serve social functions • The definition of “family” will change as the needs of the larger society changes • Contrary to some criticisms, the functionalist perspective is not inherently conservative as it accepts that society can accommodate new family forms Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    10. 2. The Family Ecology Perspective • “Families” are the smallest in a set of nested spheres that define human social ecology • Families are influenced by and impact on the rest of those spheres • The other spheres are the built environment, the social environment, and the natural environment • The ecological perspective emphasizes practical work to better the various aspects of the family’s environment. Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    11. 3. The Developmental Perspective • Families, like individuals, have a “life cycle” • Stages are defined by: • The addition or subtraction of members • The stages of life of the family’s children • Changes in the members’ attachment to social institutions, like school or work Sociology for healthcare professionals - DR KE 2013

    12. 4. Conflict and Feminist Perspectives • Conflict and feminist perspectives seek to confront and end oppression, particularly oppression of women, in families and family-related policies • These goals include changing policies that harm female-led households, fighting domestic violence, recognizing the validity of unpaid labour, and pushing for legal recognition of same-sex couples. • Like the ecological perspective, this perspective is emphatic about performing real advocacy, not only academic theorizing.
