One of the goals of sociology is to understand the connections between social and personal problems. This book explores these connections by taking a scientific look at community patterns of well-being and distress.


One of the goals of sociology is to understand the connections between social and personal problems. This book explores these connections by taking a scientific look at community patterns of well-being and distress. The authors critically attack the reliance placed upon clinical diagnostic tools, instead, moving towards a social model for stress research as an alternative to a medical model.
