Norms, another importance in sociology are parts of behaviour. Norms tend to reflect the values of the group and specify those actions that are proper and those that are inappropriate, as well as rewards for sticking to something and punishments for following rules and laws. Socialisation means the process by which we learn the culture of our society. For example, looking at different behaviours. Socialisation describes a process which may lead to desirable or moral outcomes.
Using reflective Practice you will be able to contribute to your service provision by being able to reflect .process, evaluate and achieve progress through your better understanding of client group/user.

Sharing the same culture integrates individuals into society by giving them a sense of solidarity with others. In which this enables members to agree on goals and how to achieve them, this would result in allowing them to act and co-operate harmoniously, through social order. Functionalists believe that society could be studied scientifically. They study society on a macro scale, in which they generalise their ideas to the overlooking society, they study human behaviour and how it is shaped by the social structure i.e they look at what education does for society as a whole not just an individual. Functionalists views society is like an organism, they view it as a social system of interconnected parts, for example like the human body and how it functions, i.e the body needs the heart and lungs and brain to work together to stay alive.
From the several theories which exist with the aim of explaining altruistic behaviour, the evolutionary theory and social theory will be used to explain the above statement, other factors such as empathy and altruistic will also be outlined in an effort to understand whether actions of helping are really to reap rewards or simply out of the goodness of our hearts. In order to understand helping behaviour, a comparison has to be made see the different types of behaviour which exist. Pro-social is known as any act which is performed with the intention of benefitting another person. (Aronson, Wilson, Akert 2002). Altruism on the other hand is behaviour which is carried out in order to help another with no intention of gaining reward, even if it involves a cost to the individual helping, (Aronson et al.
Thus, it can be said that there is an element of predictability in social life. Fulfilment of expectations of persons in roles is possible when there is some consistency in their interactions, Social order implies persistence. Meanings of social order are logically and empirically related, therefore, a society is an organisation of the human relationships which constitute social structure. The ordering of human lives in terms a matrix of social expectations comprises all of the distinctively human qualities of social behaviour. Social order is based on learning i.e.
To understand the different views of family, we must first understand how the theory applies to family and how each theory affects the views of individuals of the family and the views of society. It is also important to know how each theory affects social change within the institution. Lastly, I will examine the similarities and differences of the theoretical views. The functionalist theory focuses on the way in which family gratifies the needs of its members and contributes to the stability of society (Schaefer, 2009, p. 292). The theory is concerned with the basic needs and the desire for social order and stability in society.
Ehrenreich cites two human sources, one from Charles Fourier and the other one from Edmund Leach. Both hold eventually that the family is the negative piece for the society, being a barrier to human progress and for the other side, being the source of all discontents. Finally, the author states that no matter if we are healthy or dysfunctional family, all of we need outside assistance so we won’t implode. We need more gender equality and better child welfare. Questions 1.- The opportunities that celebrity crimes do we allow ourselves to think about the family is that this may not be the ideal and perfect living arrangement after all, that it can be a nest of pathology and a cradle of gruesome violence.
Lack of stimulation; the social exchange theory suggests that people look for rewards in a relationship of which is ‘stimulation’. Maintenance difficulties is when couples cannot give their relationship the constant support that it needs and this may be because partners cannot see each other often enough e.g. long-distance relationships. Rollie and Duck (2006) have developed a model of termination of close or friendly relationships, which includes six stages. The model starts with breakdown where one partner becomes increasingly dissatisfied with the relationship.
Russell claims, lying is morally wrong, Carson believes in some cases it is preferable and Mazur states that different traditions advocate the lying in different circumstances. In brief, until and unless there is a question to save the life of an innocent person lying is morally wrong because, it diminishes trust, withholds the information that one might need, weakens our relationships, and above all it obliterates our honesty. Lying is a threat to the trust of liar. Trust is like a sticker one it got dispatched then it can never be pasted again perfectly. Similarly ones if the lying is mixed with trust then a threat against trust of any relation are produced.
Social Identity Theory: The Social Identity Theory was created by Henri Tajfel who proposed that social Identity is a person’s sense of who they are based on the group or people they most frequently interact with, these groups they give people of self-belonging, pride and self-esteem. The theory was originally developed to understand the psychological basis of intergroup discrimination. Tajfel et al (1971) attempted to identify the minimal conditions that would make people discriminate in favour of the in-group and against another out-group. Social groups help people give themselves an identity, something to attach themselves to in the social world, like a personal title. In order to increase our self-image we enhance the status of the in- group, the group we belong to.
