Описание: Bullying in schools has become the focus of a growing body of literature; however, much of that work diminishes the role of social context, social identities, and prejudices despite extensive research evidence suggesting that many victims of bullying are targeted because of an aspect of their social identity. This book demonstrates how the prevention and intervention of this phenomenon, termed identity-based bullying, is a social justice issue. Expanding beyond bullying prevention that focuses on individual perpetrators, the book examines identity-based bullying in schools as a microcosm of larger systemic tensions and conflicts. The author utilizes a social constructivist perspective to understand the experiences of children as active agents in their own lives. She also provides an international framework to describe the impact of culture, social structures, and politics from the US and the UK. Challenges and barriers to addressing identity-based bullying are explored and recommendations are made for best practices for teachers, administrators, and mental health professionals to prevent and respond to identity-based bullying.

This book is a survey of personal illness as described in various forms of early modern manuscript life-writing. How did people in the seventeenth century rationalise and record illness? Observing that medical explanations for illness were fewer than may be imagined, the author explores the social and religious frameworks by which illness was more commonly recorded and understood. The story that emerges is of illness written into personal manuscripts in prescriptive rather than original terms. This study uncovers the ways in which illness, so described, contributed to the self-patterning these texts were set up to perform.

Social psychologists argue that people's past weighs on their present. Consistent with this view, Historical Tales and National Identity outlines a theory and a methodology which provide tools for better understanding the relation between the present psychological condition of a society and representations of its past. Author Janos Laszlo argues that various kinds of historical texts including historical textbooks, texts derived from public memory (e.g. media or oral history), novels, and folk narratives play a central part in constructing national identity. Consequently, with a proper methodology, it is possible to expose the characteristic features and contours of national identities.
In this book Laszlo enhances our understanding of narrative psychology and further elaborates his narrative theory of history and identity. He offers a conceptual model that draws on diverse areas of psychology - social, political, cognitive and psychodynamics - and integrates them into a coherent whole. In addition to this conceptual contribution, he also provides a major methodological innovation: a content analytic framework and software package that can be used to analyse various kinds of historical texts and shed new light on national identity. In the second part of the book, the potential of this approach is empirically illustrated, using Hungarian national identity as the focus. The author also extends his scope to consider the potential generalizations of the approach employed.
Historical Tales and National Identity will be of great interest to a broad range of student and academic readers across the social sciences and humanities: in psychology, history, cultural studies, literature, anthropology, political science, media studies, sociology and memory studies.
Описание: This volume brings together perspectives on social identityand peace psychology to explore the role that categorization plays in both conflictand peace-building. To do so, it draws leading scholars from across the worldin a comprehensive exploration of social identity theory and its application tosome of the world’s most pressing problems, such as intrastate conflict,uprising in the middle east, the refugee crisis, global warming, racism and peace building. A crucial theme of thevolume is that social identity theory affects all of us, no matter whether weare currently in a state of conflict or one further along in the peace process. The volume is organized into two sections. Section 1 focuseson the development of social identity theory. Grounded in the pioneering workof Dr. Henri Tajfel, section 1 provides the reader with a historical backgroundof the theory, as well as its current developments. Then, section 2 bringstogether a series of country case studies focusing on issues of identity acrossfive continents. This section enablescross-cultural comparisons in terms of methodology and findings, and encouragesthe reader to identify general applications of identity to the understanding ofpeace as well as applications that may be more relevant in specific contexts.Taken together, these two sections provide a contemporary and diverse accountof the state of social identity research in conflict situations and peacepsychology today. It is evident thatany account of peace requires an intricate understanding of identity both as acause and consequence of conflict, as well as a potential resource to beharnessed in the promotion and maintenance of peace. Understanding Peace and Conflict Through Social Identity Theory: ContemporaryGlobal Perspectives aims to helpachieve such an understanding and as such is a valuable resource to thosestudying peace and conflict, psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists,public policy makers, and all those interested in the ways in which socialidentity impacts our world.

Описание: This book takes the head-scratching out of human sexuality. Personal construct theory provides the foundation for a psychosocial explanation of sexuality that views everyday social interaction as key to the development of sexual identity and desires. The theory developed here accounts for stability and change in sexual identity through an understanding of the importance of experience and the importance of meaning in everyday life. The potential impact of erotica and pornography on sexual desire is discussed, as is the role of social power on sexual behaviour. The variation of sexual expression among individuals—everything from asexuality and sado-masochism to sexual assault—is examined and explained. Formal techniques for changing sexual desires are also presented.
Описание: We allplay games at work – but have you ever wondered how your identity becomes boundup with game playing? This book is about employees in the Higher Educationworkplace and it provides an interpretation of why people act the way they doat work as an expression of game playing. It offers an insight into how peopletry to adapt and fit in at work by looking at how value is attached to certainidentities through the lens of class and gender. The figure of the 'chav', the 'emotional woman', 'TheGrafter', and 'Mrs. Bucket', are explored in detail as representations of whatkinds of people are permitted, or not, to fit in at work. These identities aretopical, and may even be familiar to readers, but the author’s analysis of themchallenges why they exist, what function these identities serve at work, andwho is able to deploy and inscribe them as part of the games people play atwork.
