Sociology of Mental Disorder (920:631)

0.00 (0 votes)
Document Description
This course serves as a general introduction to the sociology of mental health and illness. The first part of the course focuses on basic sociological processes and concepts that underlie the study of mental health and disorder. It begins by examining the meaning of the concept of mental disorder and its relationship to normal distress, disease, and social deviance. It then considers the relationship of a social perspective with the psychological and biological approaches that dominate the study of mental illness. Finally, it examines general issues in defining and measuring mental illness and distress and how community studies have measured types and rates of disorder. The second part of the course focuses on basic sociological issues in the area of psychological distress. The model of the stress process has been the central paradigm sociologists have used to study social factors and distress. It focuses on how distress is a natural product of systems of social integration, stratification, and culture. We then consider how social factors shape the manifestations of psychological symptoms, the labeling and social construction of mental illness, and the responses to people who have been labeled as mentally ill. Finally, we will examine some issues in the social identification and treatment of persons labeled as mentally ill.

This course serves as a general introduction to the sociology of mental health and

illness. The first part of the course focuses on basic sociological processes and concepts that
underlie the study of mental health and disorder. It begins by examining the meaning of the
concept of mental disorder and its relationship to normal distress, disease, and social
deviance. It then considers the relationship of a social perspective with the psychological
and biological approaches that dominate the study of mental illness. Finally, it examines
general issues in defining and measuring mental illness and distress and how community
studies have measured types and rates of disorder.


The second part of the course focuses on basic sociological issues in the area of

psychological distress. The model of the stress process has been the central paradigm
sociologists have used to study social factors and distress. It focuses on how distress is a
natural product of systems of social integration, stratification, and culture. We then
consider how social factors shape the manifestations of psychological symptoms, the
labeling and social construction of mental illness, and the responses to people who have
been labeled as mentally ill. Finally, we will examine some issues in the social identification
and treatment of persons labeled as mentally ill.


Course grades are based on three requirements: 1) leading one or two discussion

sections over the course of the semester (10%); 2) class participation (20%); and 3) a
research paper on a course-related topic of the student’s choosing that the instructor has
approved (70%). Students will discuss their ideas for this paper in class on October 13 and
present an oral summary of the paper on December 8.


Beginning on the third week of class, students will be responsible for distributing

the readings for the discussion sessions they will lead to the entire class. This must be done
in the class the week before the readings will be discussed. In addition, all students should
purchase a copy of the book, Creating Mental Illness, which is available in paperback from
the Livingston Bookstore or from Amazon.com.

The outline of topics and dates is:

9-1 Overview of the course and discussion of student and instructor interests. No readings.
