Social networks: social identity & the importance of both formal & informal group memberships (what can we do?)
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible. - T. E. Lawrence
Social networks: social identity & the importance of both formal & informal groups (what can we do?)
the social identity model highlights the value of group membership (more & less formal) for both psychological & physical wellbeing - are there groups you would like to join (or initiate) and are there helpful ways you can increase the sense of the importance to you of some of the groups you're a member of (for example by increasing your involvement with them).
