Transcript of SocioCultural Level of Analysis Concept Map

Rachaud Smith
4th period- Psychology IB 1 SocioCultural Level of Analysis Principle #1 Human beings are social animals and we have a basic need to belong.
Biological and cognitive systems that make up the individual are embedded in an even larger system of interrelationships with others
Relationship between individual and group is bidirectional: the individual is affected by the group and the group is affected by the individual. Principle #2 Culture influences behavior
Culture is the norms and values that define a society
In multicultural society, there is a need to understand the affect of culture on a person's behavior
Studying culture helps us understand and appreciate cultural differences Principle #4 People's views of the world are resistant to change
World view defined as the way the world is understood- how, why, what it does or what values are essential in the whole community
Culture helps shape our world view
Community's values are passed down through the generations
Sense of self is developed within social and cultural contexts Principle #3 Humans are social animals, therefor they have a social self
People have more than one individual identity
People have collective or social identity (ex: when a famous person dies, a lot of people across the country and/or world mourn them as if they were family
Social identities define who we are
Many behaviors are determined by members of the group that they're in, such as family, friends, etc The SocioCultural Level of Analysis focuses on how environment and culture affect behavior and thinking.
Factors of the SocioCultural Level include Labeling and Self-Fulfilling Prophecy, Poverty and Socio-Economic Class, and Early Trauma or Abuse. We believe what we believe because of the environment we are around. We act the way we do because of the environment we are around. We act the way we do because we want to be part of our environment. We act the way we act depending on where we are or who we are with. Additional Info
