ensuring there is suitable access for a disabled person to get upstairs, without any fuss, the same as it would be for a person with no disabilities. Inclusion – Inclusion means to be fully included, to make people feel valued and respected irrespective of Race, gender, disability, and sexual orientation.

Conclusion -> draw together main ideas/arguments An outsider does not fit into society and they will do what they see to be right. Although the legal system is meant to be fair, it is only fair to society. If some one is different society tries to outcast them. More often than not, justice does not reach as far as the outsider. Justice is what is seen to be right and just by society and this means that society is catered for.
Members of the lower classes are most likely to take this option as they have poorer opportunities due to lower levels of education and employment. 3. Ritualism – abandon the goal of success but stick to the rules rigidly. Typically the lower middle class opt for this. They are socialised to conform to the norms, meaning they have an inability to become deviant.
Social action theorists believe that illusion of a stable and constant society is slightly more than hundreds of individual interactions each carried out by choice and interpretation. Max Weber a famous social action theorist put forward his view that humans are fundamentally different from the subject of matter of the natural sciences, due to the fact that they have free-will; in that they make decisions, attach meanings, hold intents and harbour motives. Therefore, the ultimate aim of sociology should be inevitably to individual decision and thoughts, rather than social structure. Weber takes on a completely different viewpoint from Durkheim, who put forward his theory that individual behaviour is constrained by determined by natural laws. Nevertheless, one major criticism of these structuralist approaches, i.e.
“The social model of disability locates disability not within the individual disabled person, but within society” (French, 2004, p. 265). Drawing upon the academic writing of disabled people and others, as well as the case study, first describe the social model of disability and then discuss its relevance to the practice of therapists. The social model of disability promotes equality, dignity, independence and choice of disabled people focusing attention on the idea that impairment itself is not a limitation, it is a barrier within society which disables and prevent people from fulfilling their potential. Therefore in this essay I am going to describe social model of disability viewing disability in terms of environmental, attitudinal and structural barriers, explaining how these barriers may become limitations for disabled people. In the first part of the essay I will define social model of disability and explain how this model can change disabled people’s views relating to their own disability.
Functionalism has received criticism for neglecting the negative functions of an event, such as divorce. Functionalism does not encourage people to take an active role in changing their social environment, even when such change may benefit them. Instead, functionalism sees active social change as undesirable because the various parts of society will compensate naturally for any problems that may arise. The founder of the functionalist theory is Emile Durkheim. This theory can also be known as the consensus theory; society can also
There may be outliers in the form of singular events that do not follow the same path as most of the decisions that have created a virtuous life. It is for that reason we drop those outliers and look at someone’s long history to evaluate. Utilitarianism is the thought or the theory that is defined by providing the best scenario for the group or largest group possible. It does not focus on the individual. Utilitarianism focuses on the belief that actions can be morally correct if the masses get more of the benefit than any one person.
William Graham Sumner was another supporter of the laissez-faire idea. Sumner’s writing was a strong example that the government structure should not do anything but create peace. This concept is further backing the idea that government should be remain as small as possible. He writes in Social Classes Owe to Each Other that each social class owes eachother nothing, and that each citizen is entitled to the pursuit of happiness and an equal opportunity in doing so, but not everyone has the right to nor are they entitled to the right. This reflects the laissez-faire argument of what little the government interaction with social classes would
An activity done by extrinsic motivation may not be done because a person enjoys it, it’s often done because they want the end outcome. Working out is a great example, the result of looking better is extrinsic motivation, and the working out is not done because they like how they feel when they workout. Amotivation is the lack of motivation or drive to do something (McDavid, Cox, & Amorose, 2012). Amotivation is when someone does like doing something and feels there is no need to do that
Social Deviance Experiment Deviance is a failure to conform to social norms, and social norms vary from culture to culture. It is as easy as straying, just a bit, from what is considered normal. In some regard, all people choose to be deviant in some way or another. Behaviors, after all, are only deemed deviant after someone has successfully labeled them so. I would like to believe that, like beauty, deviance is in the eye of the beholder.
