Traumatic Brain Injury, Labeling Theory and Societal Stigmatization Part 1 Video Presentation
Posted by Second Chance to Live on July 13, 2013
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. In my experience, I have found that people learn in difference ways, some through reading while other people learn better through watching and listening. Several days ago I wrote an article that I would like to share with you through a video presentation. The name of the article is Traumatic Brain Injury, Labeling Theory and Societal Stigmatization Part 1.
I would like to share with a little excerpt from this article:
When I was attending junior college many years ago one of the courses that I enrolled in and attended was Sociology. The course was an elective and a per-requisite. I am glad that I had the opportunity to attend the classes and learn from the course.
The study of Sociology gives insights into how various factors impact society such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, education, and social class that affect work and how organizations run. During the course of my studies in that class I discovered some thing that has stayed with me long after completing the class in Sociology. What I discovered was the impact of what I heard described as, “labeling theory”. According to Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia:
“Labeling theory holds that deviance is not inherent to an act, but instead focuses on the tendency of majorities to negatively label minorities or those seen as deviant from standard cultural norms…including terms related to deviance, disability or diagnosis of a mental disorder… The theory is concerned with how the self-identity and behavior of individuals may be determined or influenced by the terms used to describe or classify them. It is associated with the concepts of of self-fulfilling prophecy and stereotyping…A stigma is defined as a powerfully negative label that changes a person’s self-concept and social identity”.
