Yet the four groups also articulated possibilities for resistance. They rejected the notion of commodity culture as completely deterministic of psychological and emotional well-being.
The possibility of finding alternative ways of helping people to find value and purpose in life was spoken about in all groups, as a positive response to the harms they had already outlined.
Members of the Community Health Group spoke of the value of their community-based activities, in countering the individualization, isolation and narcissism found elsewhere
Participants in the Advocacy Group also stressed that a good quality of life – and social inclusion – depended on a material base: i.e. having an adequate income.
