Basic Definitions
Social Class - based on level of income (Hierarchy) arrangements of people in society
as economic groups
Socio-Economic Status societal status using factors or measurements such as
income levels; paying rent or not, based on people, communities, factors that show
that you are well off or not like income, size of car, size of house (age, unemployment
, retirement plans = not factors)
Social Causation Hypothesis factors associated with socio-economic status
influence on health, link between incomes (poor people end up with poor health)
Selection Hypothesis life course perspectives; parental income can lead to better
resources, education and better outcomes, what happens when you are younger
makes you what you are when you are older (exposure at a young age can lead to
illness when you are older).
Psychological Stress

Mediating factors
How one copes is very important (impacts psychological factors and how it
effects health)
Crisis Theory –always trying to get back to a happier time in ones life; homeostasis
and equilibrium; deals with coping; based on cognitive theory; Appraisal of models

Social Interaction vs. Symbolic Interaction
Social Interaction managing stress + coping, minimize social stigmas,
acceptance
Symbolic Interaction how it is to be different, disabled and ill is symbolic
Health Related Behaviors

Illness: aimed at seeking treatment; perception; evaluation and their own
reactions; not wanting to be diagnosed
Health Behavior: Health is a maintenance; seeks treatment; seeks vaccines
Gender Theory
Gender roles + stereotypes
Biological differences between male + female
Women report more illnesses then men (reporting an illness is seen as weak,
men dont want to be seen as weak)
Cultural Theory
Same as gender theory (not all report it because its a sign of weakness)
Women report more illnesses and causations such as smoking and drinking
