Social networks: social identity & the importance of both formal & informal group memberships (what can we do?)
We must all die. But that I can save (a person) from days of torture, that is what I feel as my great and ever new privilege. Pain is a more terrible lord of mankind than even death himself. - Albert Schweitzer
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).
