Slide 1

Social Systems Theory Human Behavior and the Social Environment

Slide 2

Characteristics It is far reaching It offers more prominent potential for depiction and mix of unique hypotheses into a solitary structure that some other system. It gives suggestive prompts To all parts of human conduct It can possibly give a typical dialect. Niggardliness It permits the lessening of speculations to a system that can be aced.

Slide 3

Providing Meaning to Theory General frameworks hypothesis, which incorporates the smaller field of social frameworks, is a cross-disciplinary group of logical suspected that created amid the twentieth century. Social frameworks point of view: a philosophical perspective on the relationship of individual with their social condition. Social frameworks show: implying that it is in the meantime a speculation to be tried, essentially through its application to proficient practice.

Slide 4

Systems viewpoint gives the best hypothetical premise to the investigation of human correspondence.

Slide 5

Systems/Systemic Thinking System: An arrangement of things or parts shaping an entirety. A perplexing solidarity shaped of numerous regularly different parts subject to a typical arrangement or filling a typical need. Systemic Thinking: Using the brain to perceive design, consider solidarity, and shape some lucid wholeness – to try to finish the photo.

Slide 6

Systems comprises of components that are fit for being caught on. Systemic deduction incorporates those methods for believing that look to comprehend rationality and connectedness of all life. Believed is designed and forced on the world as experienced by the perceiver. Understanding of the part/entire nature of life is the focal fundamental of systemic considering.

Slide 7

A social framework is made out of people or gatherings of people who cooperate and commonly impact each other's conduct. A social framework is a limited arrangement of interrelated exercises that together constitute a solitary element.

Slide 8

Polar Positions Systems exist at all levels: Persons Families Organizations Communities Societies Cultures What is a fundamental unit of a social framework?

Slide 9

Macro versus Smaller scale Whole versus Part Holistic Viewpoint: The entire decides the activities of its parts. Individuals are dictated by society. Atomistic Viewpoint: The entire is the aggregate of its parts Persons decide the general public.

Slide 10

The comprehensive view suggested "descending" causality, while the atomistic view inferred "upward" causality. Concur? Oppose this idea? These two positions are critical and intense when connected to the errand of choosing how to intercede in human conduct.

Slide 11

This duality has risen inside our calling as the chronicled qualification amongst "casework" and "group association", or as "individual change" versus "social change". This duality is characteristic in other social/behavioral controls, most unequivocally in the worldview of "nature versus sustain". Both polar positions are significant and must be considered while looking at human issues.

Slide 12

Holon Each social substance whether vast or little, unpredictable or basic, is a holon. This term is obtained from Greek dialect to express every substance is all the while a section and an entirety. A social unit is comprised of parts to which it is the entire (suprasystem) and in the meantime is a piece of some bigger entire (segment). What is focal is that any framework is by definition both part and entirety.

Slide 13

Focal framework: The framework got essential consideration. Distinguishes the viewpoint from which the spectator sees, and breaks down the framework and its condition The possibility of holon then requires the onlooker to go to both the parts of that central framework and the suprasystem (critical condition) to completely comprehend it.

Slide 14

Social System Theory is "holonistic" requiring: Specification of the central framework Specification of the units or parts that constitute that holon Specification of the huge ecological frameworks Specification of one's own position in respect to the central framework.

Slide 15

Energy/Information The fundamental "stuff" of a framework is vitality. Vitality can be as data and assets. Framework activity can be comprehended as the development of vitality/data: Within a framework Between as framework and its condition Information is ingested as vitality to a similar degree that sustenance satisfies organic needs.

Slide 16

What happens in and between social frameworks are "exchanges of vitality/data" between people or gatherings of people. Vitality is characterized as: Capacity for activity Action Power to impact change

Slide 17

Energy and data are not indistinguishable. Vitality must be organized so as to be valuable. Data offers frame to the vitality. Vitality gets from a complex of sources including the physical limits of its individuals; social assets, for example, loyalties, shared conclusions, and normal qualities; and assets from its condition.

Slide 18

Energy hotspots for identity frameworks: Food The physical state of the body Intellectual and passionate capacities Emotional support from companions, family or associates Cultural and religious endorses for one's convictions and exercises Recognition of one's status by society and one's partners in an association One's feeling of self-esteem and respectability.

Slide 19

Entropy and Synergy The propensity of an unattended framework to move toward a sloppy express that is described by diminished cooperations among its segments. Entropy is a measure of the amount of vitality not accessible for utilize. Illustrations: He's not performing up to his potential What a misuse of ability

Slide 20

Synergy alludes to progressively accessible vitality inside a framework got from uplifted communication among its segments. Cases: She has it all together, and take a gander at the outcomes Out of numerous, one (E pluribus unum) Synergy happens in open, living frameworks.

Slide 21

The Four Basic Energy Functions Systems require vitality to exist. There are four fundamental vitality works that are basic to do a framework's motivations: Securing vitality from the earth Securing vitality inside Goal fulfillment outside the framework Goal accomplishment inside the framework

Slide 22

External Internal (environmental) (components) SE SI GI GE

Slide 23

The four capacities (SI, SE, GI, GE) are not independent; a framework plays out these capacities in the meantime. In any trades amongst entire and parts, all components get some vitality and have a few objectives met. The equal way of the exchanges and trades ought to be remembered.

Slide 24

If one capacity is constantly prevailing, alternate capacities are disregarded, to the impairment of the aggregate framework. Case: The family framework that focuses vitality just on the SE capacity may encounter inward breaking down. "hook key children"

Slide 25

Organization Even if vitality is accessible in and to a framework, if there is an aggregate nonattendance of association then there is an aggregate nonappearance of framework. Nonappearance of association equivalents entropy. Association alludes to the gathering and masterminding of parts to shape an entire keeping in mind the end goal to put a framework into "working request." System association secures, exhausts, and moderates vitality to keep up the framework and further its motivations.

Slide 26

If the assignment of vitality association is not proficient, then the framework will neglect to create. Association is not synonymous with more elevated amounts of intricacy. The measure of adequacy of association is its ability to satisfy the framework's objectives, and in addition the objectives of its parts.

Slide 27

Disorganization of a framework – whether individual, family, or neighborhood – does not mean absolutely disorderly; it implies not adequately sorted out. Families with issues are for the most part disarranged families, and the explanations behind this confusion can exude from inward sources as well as outside strengths:

Slide 28

The objectives of at least one individuals are contrary to framework objectives. The components of association are disturbed or hazy. Energies from inside the framework are not accessible or not adequate for the requests on the framework. The family is not enough sorted out to get extra vitality from outside its own framework. The earth practices a disordering impact on the family framework (mistreatment). Vitality is denied or not accessible from the suprasystem (unemployment; or having welfare benefits cut off.).

Slide 29

Causation, Feedback Loops, and Chaos Theory It is not helpful to comprehend human conduct through looking for straight, one-directional cause-impact connections. It fills little need to ask "why" people do what they do. A more valuable request is "the means by which" or how something happened. "A communicates with B to create AB, which changes both An and B, and results in C, which is halfway A, B, and AB."

Slide 30

The procedure in which a framework gets interior or natural reactions to its conduct and, thus, responds to these got reactions by pleasing and absorbing the vitality/data got, by modifying the framework's structure, and afterward captivating in adjusted trades of vitality/data.

Slide 31

The major idea in tumult hypothesis is request versus clutter. Vitality that is totally level, sloppy, and undifferentiated is in a condition of turmoil. Frameworks and subsystems which are kept up just by incredible exertion and just by exceptional vitality trade inside and with their condition is a case of request.
