 Social Problems: Continuity and Change (2016) discusses in the United States

The Sociological Perspective’s View on Family Problems  Overview: Social Problems: Continuity and Change (2016) discusses in the United States, the institution of the family has been changing fast enough that most of us can describe changes that have taken place over the course of a single lifetime (or even the recent decade). Whether these changes are defined as a problem or solution is, of course, related to one’s position on the political spectrum.  Social problems also can affect family life and intimate relationships in various ways. For example, domestic violence, intimate partner violence (IPV), stalking, child abuse, infidelity, and divorce. There are several tasks to complete in this Prompt Option; therefore, please make sure to review your main post before you submit it. Task #1: Watch Leslie Morgan Steiner’s TED talk titled, “Why domestic violence victims don’t leave.” Task #2: Watch Esther Perel’s TED talk titled, “Rethinking infidelity … a talk for anyone who has ever loved.” Task #3: Watch The Gottman Institute YouTube Clip titled, “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” Task #4 Instructions: After fully reading Chapter 10, reviewing the Chapter 10 Lecture Notes, and viewing the above clips for option #1, please fully answer the following prompt in its entirety: Explain the sociological perspective (i.e., functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism) view of family problems. What can we gain by using each sociological perspective to study family problems? What do we learn about family life from sociology’s major theoretical approaches, including functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism? What is one criticism or limitation of each theoretical perspective? What can you draw from these various types of theoretical perspectives that might help you make family life better in some ways? Be sure to cite evidence from either the text or lecture notes and all of the chosen prompt option materials to substantiate your argument.
