Críticas:

"Meeting its objectives to educate and inspire, the book would appeal to researchers, academics, practitioners and anyone wishing to further understand the importance of belonging to social groups." - Kelly O'Brien, Toorak College and the University of Melbourne, Australia, in The Australian Educational and Developmental Psychologist

"Covering an eclectic set of topics, from work-stress to brain injury, from a variety of professional perspectives, [The Social Cure] is clearly written and well-structured ... [and] should prove intriguing and informative for academic researchers, healthcare professionals and policy makers." - Wendy Cousins, University of Ulster, UK, in The Psychologist

"That social context has powerful, manifold effects on individual and community well-being is now widely recognized across disciplinary and ideological boundaries. The Social Cure provides an impressive and diverse array of empirical evidence showing how pervasive these effects are. The incisive conclusion is packed with insights into the implications of this research for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in many fields. Let's hope that these lessons are widely heeded." - Robert D. Putnam, Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University, USA

"For decades, we have known that social groups and networks influence health outcomes. This wonderfully lucid, insightful book explains how, and why. What is more, it suggests ways we can use this knowledge to improve health and well-being. It is a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers alike." - Deborah Prentice, Professor of Psychology, Princeton University, USA

"This volume does an excellent job at integrating different perspectives on the complex relationship between identity and health. It assesses the risks and resources associated with social identities and outlines concrete interventions that take advantage of these insights. It is an invaluable resource for all those interested in health issues in psychology." - Naomi Ellemers, Professor of Social Psychology of Organisations, Leiden University, The Netherlands

"This educative, wideranging and informative book argues that participation in social groups improves mental health and well being. While neuropsychologists may be most interested in the four chapters that are directly concerned with neurologically impaired people, the remaining chapters will inform them of the benefits of groups in other areas such as survivors of disasters, rape victims and concentration camp survivors." - Barbara Wilson, The Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, Ely, UK

Reseña del editor:

A growing body of research shows that social networks and identities have a profound impact on mental and physical health. With such mounting evidence of the importance of social relationships in protecting health, the challenge we face is explaining why this should be the case. What is it that social groups offer that appears to be just as beneficial as a daily dose of vitamin C or regular exercise?

This edited book brings together the latest research on how group memberships, and the social identities associated with them, determine people’s health and well-being. The volume provides a variety of perspectives from clinical, social, organisational, and applied fields that offer theoretical and empirical insights into these processes and their consequences. The contributions present a rich and novel analysis of core theoretical issues relating to the ways in which social identities, and factors associated with them (such as social support and a sense of community), can bolster individuals’ sense of self and contribute to physical and mental health. In this way it is shown how social identities constitute a ‘social cure’, capable of promoting adjustment, coping, and well-being for individuals dealing with a range of illnesses, injuries, trauma and stressors. In addition, these theories provide a platform for practical strategies that can maintain and enhance well-being, particularly among vulnerable populations.

Contributors to the book are at the forefront of these developments and the book’s strength derives from its analysis of factors that shape the health and well-being of a broad range of groups. It presents powerful insights which have important implications for health, clinical, social, and organisational psychology and a range of cognate fields.
