Assignment

Overview You will participate in a discussion activity to the sick role model to examine a specific illness (e.g., ADHD medication addiction, opioid addiction, diabetes, a broken leg, or the flu). In this exercise, I would like you to be able to apply these four specific constructs (i.e., two rights and two obligations) of the Sick Role model to an actual illness and generate a complex understanding of the phenomenon of interest. You may want to write your answers on a word processor before posting the answers on the forum. Let’s get started. Assignment Description In the last few weeks, we have discussed how people with addictions may face unique challenges seeking support from their social network and the larger society. In this assignment, we will watch a video (i.e., a lecture) on Parsons’ Sick Role and develop a deeper, structured understanding of a person’s illness experience. In our readings and lectures, we have carefully examined the different constructs held by the three theories, exploring their similarities and differences. Please identify a real-life health campaign and answer the following questions. 1. First, watch the lecture on Parsons’ Sick Role: https://youtu.be/XzEZCJnwpC4 2. Second, identify the illness of your choice and explain why the illness is a good fit for the analysis for Parsons’ Sick Role model.*Using an illness you have or familiar with may help you think through the four constructs better. 3. Using the four constructs in Parsons’ Sick Role Model (i.e., the two rights and two obligations) to explain how they may be reflected or experienced by a person with the illness of your choice. 4. Finally, based on what you have learned about the theory, give a critical analysis reflection about the extent to which Parsons’ Sick Role Model is useful or not useful to understand the person’s illness experience. 5. Word Count: I expect a word count of 800-1000
