Topic People Description
Illness Narratives Cristina Lonardi
Illness narratives refer to the representation of the subjective experience of the disease, the explication of the social meaning of the experience of illness and the illness as the incorporation of social experience. They allow us to investigate the way in which people attribute meaning to the experience of illness that involves them, entrusting the narrative with the interpretative task of (re) constructing these meanings. These tools are suitable for use in medical, clinical and nursing research environments.
Cultural and communicative processes in the family environment Maria Gabriella Landuzzi
The family environment represents a rich and complex space of relationship, characterized by values, specific languages and behaviors, whose knowledge and analysis helps us to understand internal relationships during life cycle and the relationships between families and the broader social context.
Educative processes Maria Gabriella Landuzzi
The analysis of the educational and training processes allows to describe and interpret the relationships between culture, society and education. In the current social and cultural context, characterized by evident and continuous transformations, this analysis helps to interpret some issues that are particularly relevant both from the theoretical point of view and from the point of view of the professional working in the educational and social field. In this sense, the themes of difference, inequality, respect for values, become keys of interpretation through which to face the context by assuming wider points of view.
Socialization and mediation Maria Gabriella Landuzzi
Socialization is generically the process by which individuals become social beings and active members within a social context. Analyzing the processes of socialization means to pay attention to the cultural changes that characterize today's western societies; furthermore, it helps to understand how the individual is placed between past and future, creating a sort of bridge, a mediation between what is transmitted to him (languages, values, roles, norms, expectations and beliefs) from previous generations and what he will internalize and lead to future generations.
