Social relationships In the workplace it is important to keep a professional-client relationship. With this relationship it is only alright for a client to meet a professional in their office and nowhere else. Boundaries have to be made aware so there is no way that the client and professional can get confused about the relationship and what the professional does to help the client. Managing boundaries should be one of the first things that are stated to the client. The client should realize that the professional wants to help them but can’t go to any event or become socially aquainted to the clients. Neither the client nor professional should become friends and have a life outside of the office. In the video the client asked the professional to go for coffee because she felt as if the office was to stuffy and wanted to get some fresh air. The professional asked her why she felt as if that was a good idea to be sensitive to maybe her culture. He handled it ethically correct and told her how that might not be a good idea being that there could be boundaries being broken. I would prevent any boundaries being broken before it even happened by telling the client the boundaries. I would automatically state that it is not good for the professional and client relationship if we were to become friends and explain to them why it would not be a good idea to become friends in the professional relationship. If they were to ever invite me out of the outside of the office I would nicely decline and tell them why it would not be the best idea. A social relationship should be not there when it comes to the relationship of the professional and client. Sexual relationships and social relationships are both apart of the managing boundaries. Client and professional must speak of the boundaries that way both know what they should not do and what could possibly ruin the…...

Social Relationships of Marketing and Analytic Dimensions

...SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS of MARKETING and ANALYTIC DIMENSIONS NICOLE GAJADHAR ALGOMA UNIVERSITY SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS of MARKETING and ANALYTIC DIMENSIONS Summary Any business, in order to be successful must have market researchers to analyze behaviors and actions of consumers. Without market researchers it is impossible to maintain a good business to consumer rapport. Businesses to consumer relationships are misunderstood because the dimensions of characteristics such as competence are not explained thoroughly in marketing research. This article identifies the characteristics and relationships between, “communication, trust, commitment, satisfaction and conflict handling” (Malhotra, Agarwal and Du Bisi 2010, p.20) along with a hypothesis created by the authors. The research paper attempts to prove how successful relationship marketing strategy must require an understanding of social dynamics to achieve customer satisfaction. I chose this article because I like how the authors gave thorough explanation of key characteristics behind why retail industries may lack positive business rapport and knowledge on customer satisfaction. Furthermore, I like the evaluation of content for the hypothesis and its findings displayed in the integrated model shown in the article. It explains how each social characteristic is related and how it leads to positive and negative behavior of customer satisfaction and (or) dissatisfaction. Evaluation Customer Satisfaction can be achieved......

Examine the Relationship Between Sociology and Social Policy

...“Examine the relationship between sociology and social policy” Social policies are the actions of governments, such as legal laws. They have a direct impact on citizens, for e.g. may provide them with services or income. Social policies are created after Sociological research identifies social problems of society, for e.g. policies put in place to help vulnerable children (adopted/abused), as they are highly likely to end up in gangs, as drug addicts or prostitutes. According to Worsley (1977) a social problem is some piece of social behaviour that calls for collective action to solve it. In turn, policies help tackle social problems e.g. increasing payment for foster/ adoptive careers to reduce vulnerable children getting involved with crime. The founding fathers of sociology believed that sociology had a central part to play in society – in reforming social institutions, solving social problems and improving human condition. Comte (1798-1857) saw sociology as a practical subject, not confined solely to universities, but being applied to wider society to gain social progress. Emile Durkheim believed sociology contributing to social policy can solve question of order in society. Sociologists such as Giddens place a great emphasis on the practicality of studying sociology. The most significant outcome of sociology is that it allows us to understand the world around us, providing us with knowledge and insights. This understanding can take the form of factual knowledge......

Mexico - Etiquette & Social Relationship

...During the 20th century the Mexican culture has changed rapidly. The contemporary life in the biggest cities has, in many ways, become similar to United States and Europe. However, most Mexican villagers follow the older way of life more than the city people do. There are a few etiquettes that are valid around Mexico when it comes to social relationship, greeting, dining, attire, opposite sex, shopping, and bargaining. In Mexico, the greeting and meeting formalities are very important, it is considered rude to fail to follow social protocols. It is essential to use physical contact to build trust and respect with others. Mexicans often hold a gesture (hug or handshake) longer than Americans and Canadians do. In social situations man shake hands until they know someone well, then they progress to more traditional back slapping and hugs. When women greet each other in social situations they usually do not shake hands, instead pat each other on the right forearm or shoulder. Men bow when greeting a woman in Mexico, and shake hands only if she extends her hand first. But, in business situations women usually offer a handshake. Mexicans are all about physical contact, it is essential. Dining etiquette in Mexico is important to follow if ever dining at a restaurant or in a Mexican home. When dining at Mexican´s home its necessary to remember to always show up 30 minutes or later in most places. Because arriving on time or earlier than planned is considered inappropriate. If......

Social Relationships

...CHAPTER 11: The Development of Social Relationships 4/16/14 1. How did Bowlby and Ainsworth characterize affectional bonds, attachments, and internal working models? Bowlby and Ainsworth distinguished between an affectional bond and an attachment, which involves feelings of security and having a safe base. An attachment is deduced from the existence of attachment behaviors. Once established, an attachment relationship becomes the basis of an internal working model that the child applies to future interactions with the attachment figure and with others. 2. What factors influence the parent’s bond to the child? For parents to form a strong bond to their infant, what is most crucial is not immediate contact at birth but the development and repetition of mutually reinforcing and interlocking attachment behaviors. 3. How does the child’s attachment to the parent change across infancy, early childhood, and middle childhood? Beginning around 6 months of age, which signals the presence of a clear attachment. Attachment behaviors become less visible during the preschool years, except when the child is stressed. School-aged children exhibit less safe behaviors than infants and preschoolers do, but extended separations can still be stressful. 4. What are the characteristics of parent-child relationships in adolescence? The child’s basic attachment to the parents remains strong in adolescence, despite an increase in parent-child conflict, the greater independence of......

Social Media and Relationship

...Social Media and Relationship    Imagine that you live in the past. In those days, you would live with barely any electricity in your house. You need couple days to travel from one place to the other places before technology was ever invented. Moreover, you have to go to some places to make a call because there were only a few places that have telephone. Add to that, either you wanted to send or receive letters to someone you love, you have to wait several days for the postman to come to your house. Isn’t it very upsetting to remember?  What caused life at that time was so sad? The most reasonable explanation is in the past technology has not fully developed. However, it was happening in the past. In today’s society, we live in a globalized world. We are provided with a bunch of technology, such as computer, smart phones, Internet, and others. Because of the development of the technology, these days we do not have to feel the sadness and desperation people felt at that time. Moreover, the revolution in technology has become an important part in people’s life. One important part from the Internet is social media. It becomes the unifier to more than millions people across the world. Moreover, social media enables people to engage in completely new and different ways. Even though it involves a ‘brand new’ method of communicating, people tend to use it. Social media becomes a simple form of communication to interact with someone they know or a complete stranger. It is so......

Social Interaction and Relationship Types

...Tammy Wall Social Interaction and Relationship Types SOCL350-1403A-02 Social Psychology Instruct: D. McGahey Friday, July 18, 2014 Abstract It is clear from research that the father involvement has enormous implications for men on their own path of adult development, for their wives and partners in the co-parenting relationship and, most importantly, for their children in terms of social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development (The Effects of Father Involvement, 2007). How have social scientists studied this particular behavior in the past? Explain and provide examples. Social scientists have studied the effects of the father-child relationship for many years using many different types of data that has been compiled by other types of research. Some of the data used was collected by research-based data, lessons from the field, physician input as well as interviews with children. The research data that is compiled in the data bases is collected from a diverse set of fathers. This research includes data from stay-home, primary-caregiver dads to men who seldom or never see their children. Along with married and common-law fathers, it includes stepfathers and single dads, men who share parenting responsibilities with both a partner and an ex-partner, gay fathers parenting with a male partner or co-parenting with a lesbian couple, and families where grandparents are highly involved in child rearing (Father Factors , 2011).

Assess Different Marxist Views of Relationship Between Crime and Social Class

...Assess different Marxist views of relationship between crime and social class Marxists believe that the capitalist system is just a way in which the ruling classes control and exploit the workers, and it focuses on the unequal conflict between these two sectors of society. Marxists believe that the capitalist system is criminogenic – which means that by its nature it inevitably causes crime. Marxists see crime in the capitalist system as something the ruling class can use to control the working class and crime is a result because of the oppression the working class face. They also believe that laws are enforced mostly to benefit the interests of the ruling class. Neo-Marxists are another branch of Marxism. They discuss more contemporary ideas of crime and their ideas, such as saying crime results out of political anger. They state that the traditional Marxist perspective is too deterministic. Traditional Marxist’s view of crime has 3 key aspects: The Criminogenic capitalism, the state and law making and ideological functions of crime and law. Criminogenic capitalism is the Marxist idea that crime is inevitable because of the nature of capitalism. They believe that because of capitalism as the unequal divide between classes, committing crime is sometimes the only way people can live. For example, a young man who is living in poverty may have to resort to robbery in order to survive. In addition, sometimes the working class may feel frustrated that they are under the......

Critically Examine the Relationship Between Religion and Social Change

...Sociologists suggest that there is a relationship between religion and social change but there are two main arguments. One is that religion has not helped or contributed to social change as some sociologists as that religion is a conservative force, which believe in traditional values and beliefs about moral issues and that they oppose changes that would allow individuals more freedom in personal and sexual matters. For example the Catholic Church which forbid divorce, abortion and artificial contraception. Most religion’s as a conservative force also uphold ‘family values’ and often favour a traditional patriarchal domestic division of labour. Keeping roles separate and traditional, this shows that it is not acting as a force for social change and that it would like to keep things all traditional. Similarly it can act as a conservative force as it functions to preserve things as they are. It stabilise society and maintains the status quo. Functionalists argue that religion does this by it maintaining social stability and preventing society from disintegrating. Marxists and feminists believe that religion is an ideology that supports the social structure and acts as a means of social control, creating stability in the interests of the powerful, which helps to maintain the status quo by preventing the less powerful from changing this. Marx also sees religion as it prevents the working class from uprising and therefore helping to maintain the stability of capitalist......

Assessing the Relationship of the Family to the Social Structure

...Assessing the relationship of the family to the social structure Family is one of the most important social institutions, found in various different forms all around the world in nearly all known societies. Family consists of a group of people who are related by kinship ties which is another way of saying related by blood, marriage or adoption. There are many different types of family such as nuclear family, classic extended, modified extended, beanpole, patriarchal, matriarchal, symmetrical, reconstituted, lone, parent, single parent and same sex parents. Social structure is part of society. It refers to the social institutions and social relationships and acts like the human body where each part is important on keeping the body alive. Social institutions are the organised social arrangements that each are essential in keeping society going. Such examples of this is family, religion, education, government, prison and business just to name a few. This whole process of social institutions working together are known as the building blocks of society and is seen as crucial for society to continue. Functionalism is a consensus theory approach which believes society is like the human body. It is so complex and each of the parts are interlinked in order to function properly. Functionalists state that the nuclear family is a very important social institution and that without the nuclear family performing certain important functions society wouldn't continue. ......

Relationship and Social Media

..."Relationships 2.0: Dating and Relating in the Internet Age," Does communication via social networking sites, such as Facebook, negatively affect the ability of young people to socialize and to develop and maintain healthy relationships? I think that Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and all other social media negatively affect the ability of young adults and teenagers. I think that Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and all other social media negatively affect the ability of young adults and teenagers. Young adults and teenagers are very addicted to social media; everything that they do, they do it via social media. I don’t think that young adults and teenagers can have and develop healthy relationships while having a social media account. For example, the other day I was watching the news and the news anchors reported that a teenage boy was shot and killed over a Facebook message. I have seen videos on social media websites where young people meet up to fight because of messages that were posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I always think to myself that this is not healthy for these young people because they are ending up in jail, dead, or in a hospital. I think that they shouldn’t let young adults and teenagers have social media accounts. How can teenagers and young adults grow up to be successful and professional if all they do is going on social media? Teenagers and young adults get bullied via social media and sometimes they end up committing......

The Quality of Online Social Relationships

...QUALITY OF Online Social Relationships ONLINE RELATIONSHIPS ARE LESS VALUABLE THAN OFFLINE ONES. INDEED, THEIR NET BENEFIT DEPENDS ON WHETHER THEY SUPPLEMENT OR SUBSTITUTE FOR OFFLINE SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS. { By Jonathon N. Cummings, Brian Butler, and Robert Kraut} eople use the Internet intensely tor interpersonal commimication, sending und receiving email, contacting friends and family via instant messaging services, visiting chat rooms, or subscribing to distribution lists, among other activities. The evidence is clear that interpersonal communication is an important use of the Internet, if not its most important use. For example, both selt-report surveys 112] and computer monitoring studies [5] indicate that email is the most popular online application. Claims regarding the Internets usefulness for developing social relationships, however, remain controversial. Both personal testimonials (for example, []()]) and systematically collected data document the deep and meaningful social relationships people can cultivate online (for example, |8]). This evidence, however, conflicts with data comparing the value that people place on their online relationships with offline relationships and with data comparing social relationships among heavy and light Internet users. For example. Parks and Roberts [9] surveyed users of multiplayer environments called MOOs. Ninety-three percent of the users had made friends online, but when asked to compare......

Assess the Relationship Between Sociology and Social Policy

...Assess the relationship between sociology and social policy Social policy is the actions, plans and programmes of government bodies which aim to deal with a problem or achieve a goal .e.g preventing crime and reducing poverty. Policies are often based on laws that provide the framework within which these agencies operate. The following essay will argue for and against the relationship between sociology and social policy. It can be argued that the relationship between social policy and sociology is not always consistent because sociological funding may not be implemented. This is because of a range of factors such as electoral popularity. This is the perception that social policy will not be used to if citizens will not like the policy. Also current government bodies and their ideologies will also influence the implementation of government polices. This means research findings may have to fit into the governments’ values and set of beliefs before the social policies can be implemented. Finally, funding sources are another important factor. This is the view that the government essentially influences what area of research the sociologists researches and it is essentially a reference to the phrase “He who pays the piper call the tune” this is the view that the policies suggestions are initiated by the government. The relationship between sociology and social policy according to Functionalists and Positivists such as Durkheim is that an objective and scientific approach......

Assess the Relationship Between Sociology and Social Policy

...Assess the relationship between sociology and social policy In order to understand the role of sociology in relation to social policy, it is important to firstly distinguish between social problems and sociological problems. According to Peter Worsley, a social problem is some piece of social behaviour that causes public friction and private misery and calls for collective action to solve it. According to Worsley, a sociological problem is “any pattern of relationships that calls for explanation.” In other words, it is any piece of behaviour that we wish to make sense of. However even when sociologists conduct research into social problems, there’s no guarantee that policy makers will study their findings, or that any solutions they propose will find their way into social policies. Many factors may affect whether or not sociological research succeeds in influencing policy. Some of these include electoral popularity, interest groups, globalisation and cost. Different sociological perspectives hold different views of the nature of the state and their social policy it produces. As a result, each perspective tends to take a different view of the role of sociology in relation to social policy. Early positivists such as Comte and Durkheim took the view that sociology was a science and would discover both the cause of social problems and scientifically based solutions to them. As such, their approach was part of the Enlightenment project to use science ad reason to improve......

Social Media Its Affects on Relationships

...<Name> Brandi McCrary <Course> UNV 104 <Date> March 20, 2016 <Instructor> Megan Castles Social Media and the Affects it has on Relationships Welcome to the digital age. Today’s society is constantly logged onto social media sites such as Facebook, twitter or Instagram. It is often over looked how much influence those sites have. They are used regularly throughout people lives, it has practically become part of their routine. Social media keeps people in contact and updated on their relations with family members and other people in their lives. With this contact, many forms of relationships are developed. Social media can affect relationships with friends, family as well as the relationships people have with their own self. Friends come and go, that is a simple fact of life. While social media has made it easier to stay connected, it has also played a role in tearing friends apart. Social media gives users a sense of belonging, allowing them to stay connected with friends during daily life activities and special occasions. Even though they may not be in the same city or state, giving them the chance to keep old friends and make new ones as well (Baron & Gomez, 2013, p279). This allows one to seek advice and vent to their friends when they are in need of help or just need to release some pent up stress. Venting on social media can sometimes be a bad idea, especially if it is posted publically. A public post can be read by all and those who do...
