A Sociological Approach to Mental Illness

Co-editor and sociology professor Elizabeth Anne Wood used her personal experiences while putting together her new book “Between Us,” a guide towards healing and change. Wood says that the project first took root two decades ago while addressing her own mental health, but didn’t fully come to fruition until around the time of the pandemic. Patricia Wu meets with Wood to discuss “Between Us” and its message of mental well-being.

The Stress of Daily Life and Current Events

In today’s world, stress is a universal experience. Whether it’s from school, family, or work, most of us have too much on our plates. What makes stress unique today is our constant exposure to the world’s problems. We’re more connected and informed than ever, which is a good thing, but it also means we’re dealing with a level of stress humanity has never experienced before. We’re in uncharted territory when it comes to managing this new kind of stress.

Sociology for Self-Help

Sociology is the study of society, the groups within it, and the institutions that shape it. Since societies are ultimately made up of individuals, sociology can be used to understand and help people on a personal level. According to Wood, if we recognize that people have the power to create and change society, this understanding can be a powerful tool for healing and growth.
