Abstract

Health and well-being is best understood in terms of a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors. But how ‘social’ is the biopsychosocial model when applied to mental health and rehabilitation? Psychology has traditionally viewed health as being determined by individual behavior. An integrative psychological approach is required to draw understanding from sociology, social psychology, and politics to consider how wider systemic, structural, and contextual factors impact on health behavior and outcomes. This e-book is dedicated to examining collective and community approaches to well-being and rehabilitation. In particular, the articles contained within this e-book are seeking to understand how social integration, social groups, social identity, and social capital influence health, well-being, and rehabilitation outcomes.

Abstract

"Examining materials from early modern and contemporary North India and Pakistan, Tellings and Texts brings together seventeen first-rate papers on the relations between written and oral texts, their performance, and the musical traditions these performances have entailed. The contributions from some of the best scholars in the field cover a wide range of literary genres and social and cultural contexts across the region. The texts and practices are contextualized in relation to the broader social and political background in which they emerged, showing how religious affiliations, caste dynamics and political concerns played a role in shaping social identities as well as aesthetic sensibilities. By doing so this book sheds light into theoretical issues of more general significance, such as textual versus oral norms; the features of oral performance and improvisation; the role of the text in performance; the aesthetics and social dimension of performance; the significance of space in performance history and important considerations on repertoires of story-telling. Tellings and Texts is essential reading for anyone with an interest in South Asian culture and, more generally, in the theory and practice of oral literature, performance and story-telling."

Abstract

Através da análise do dia-a-dia das mulheres de um bairro popular numa cidade marroquina, pretende-se demonstrar como o Islão é constantemente reinterpretado e apropriado, juntamente com outros elementos culturais, na reconstrução de uma identidade feminina urdida em jogos sociais intensos - contrariando-se, assim, os habituais estereótipos da "mulher muçulmana reclusa". O argumento principal é o de que só através da observação dos contextos domésticos e informais, nos quais as mulheres tecem as suas relações sociais, é possível aceder as noções de pessoa, self e comunidade e compreender os processos pelos quais os papéis religiosos e de género são reinventados através de uma bricolage que recicla tradição e modernidade. Este argumento e sustentado etnograficamente por uma descrição do ritmo anual da vida doméstica e do bairro, bem como pelo acompanhamento de celebrações religiosas e nacionais. O levamento etnográfico estende-se dos ritos a outras performances comunicativas (como as matinées em torno da televisão e do vídeo), das muitas outras ocasiões e formas de sociabilidade (visitas, actividades quotidianas, pequenas trocas e empréstimos, participação e papéis dos parentes, amigos e vizinhos) a observância do equilíbrio delicado da decência, religiosidade e honra adequadas a cada momenta social e temporal. Este itinerário etnográfico pretende demonstrar coma as noções de pessoa e comunidade são estabilizadas e mantidas pela repetição quotidiana de gestos, cenas e fórmulas, ao mesmo tempo que os seus limites são constantemente actualizados em cada encontro com amigos, vizinhos, parentes ou antropólogos. Finalmente, argumenta-se que existem no Islão dispositivos compatíveis com a modernidade, no que respeita ao corpo e ao self entendidos coma projectos individuais e racionais, ao mesmo tempo que se demonstra coma o "regateamento da realidade", num contexto de pobreza e poupança simbólica, reinscreve as referências modernizadoras num idioma de mobilidade social. O recurso a comparações fora do contexto marroquino imediato permite situar este trabalho no âmbito mais alargado dos estudos interpretativos urbanos e sobre a globalização.

Abstract

In this ebook, a collection of 18 papers presents empirical research, as well as novel theoretical considerations, on how multiple identities are being managed by the individuals holding them. The papers draw on theories from social psychology in the context of the social identity approach. The first chapter presents eight papers on different types of multiple identity configurations in a variety of contexts, and the costs and benefits of these configurations for the individual (e.g., well-being). The second chapter gives insights on how conflict between multiple identities is managed by individuals. And the final chapter analyses how multiple identities impact intragroup and intergroup relations.
