Soziologie des Alterns: Leiden wir unter einem by Carsten Kiehne

By Carsten Kiehne

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Soziologie - adjust, Universität Lüneburg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Einleitung

Ich habe für meine Hausarbeit das Thema „Soziologie des Alter(n)s“ gewählt, weil es nicht nur für eine bestimmte Gesellschaftsgruppe, viel mehr für jede Gesellschaft und allen darin lebenden Individuen Gültigkeit besitzt. Dem Altern als Prozess und dem Altern im sozialen Kontext kann sich niemand entziehen. Dennoch empfinde ich es als erstaunlich, dass in unserer meines Erachtens Jugendzentrierten Gesellschaft, versucht wird, das Altern so weit es geht von sich weg zu schieben. Für wen bedeutet es beispielsweise schon ein Kompliment zu hören, dass guy „alt geworden“ sei? was once empfinden sie als Leser dieses Satzes dabei, wenn ich sage: „Sie sind aber alt geworden!“?
Einige von uns denken in Anbetracht dieser Worte vielleicht, „Ja, das regulate steht mir gut!“, „Ich bin wirklich erfahrener, weiser geworden.“, oder „Das adjust lehrt mich wahrhaft leben.“. Doch in den meisten Menschen kreisen anschließend wahrscheinlich eher adverse Gedanken von Dispositionen oder altersbedingten physischen Einschränkungen, oder Ängsten des Verlustes von Attraktivität oder Geistesverfassung und einer Furcht Anforderungen nicht mehr gewachsen zu sein und anpassungsunfähig zu werden.
Es geht mir in meiner Arbeit additionally auch darum, used to be „Altern“ für mich, für andere, ja für die gesamte Gesellschaft bedeutet und setzte mich aus diesem Grunde auch mit der Frage auseinander, ob wir unter einem „Methusalem-Komplott“ leiden, einem bislang „nur“ psychologischem Krieg der Jungen gegen die Alten (Ein Generationenkonflikt der sich auch in einem negativ besetztem Altersstereotyp ausweisen würde.), wie Frank Schirrmacher es bezeichnet.
Ich werde in Kapitel 1 zunächst die Grundbegriffe erläutern, im 2. Kapitel dann auf derzeitige Bedingungen und Geschichte der Sozialpolitik bis dato zu sprechen kommen und im dritten Abschnitt empirische Untersuchungen für das Themengebiet Medien und Alter(n) vorweisen, um mir anschließend im Fazit hoffentlich meine eben aufgestellten Fragen selbst beantworten zu können. Der Schlussteil soll unter anderem eine Darstellung der Wahrnehmung meines eigenen Alterungsprozesses sowie Schlussfolgerungen dieses Aufsatzes für meine künftige Sozialarbeit beinhalten.

Der Demografische Wandel als Störfaktor in den sozialen by André Mandel

By André Mandel

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Soziologie - adjust, observe: 3,0, Universität der Bundeswehr München, Neubiberg, Veranstaltung: Seminar: Soziologie des Alterns, 20 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Ziel dieser Arbeit soll es sein, die demografischen und sozioökonomischen
Veränderungen der heutigen Gesellschaft den Merkmalen sozialer Netzwerke
gegenüberzustellen und daraus Folgen für die künftige Lebenspraxis abzuleiten. Durch
die Fülle von Aufgaben und Funktionen, die soziale Netzwerke übernehmen können,
werde ich in der Arbeit nur einen Schwerpunkt setzen können, der sich hauptsächlich
mit dem move von Unterstützungsleistungen der Sandwich-Generation an die alte
Generation unter Berücksichtigung der Familienbindungen befassen wird. Der
Schwerpunkt liegt dabei allerdings nicht in einer Ist-Analyse, sondern in dem Versuch
eine Prognose für die nächsten Jahrzehnte zu skizzieren. Die neuen veränderten
Rahmenbedingungen des Wandels werden dabei als Interventionsvariablen, die auf die
sozialen Unterstützungsnetzwerke einwirken und vermutlich in Zukunft noch stärker
einwirken werden, interpretiert.
Im ersten Teil wird vor allem die faktischen Gegebenheiten eingegangen und Statistiken, sowie Entwicklungen anhand von Prognosen beschrieben, um im zweiten Teil
der Arbeit dies dann mit den Merkmalen sozialer Unterstützungsnetzwerke in
Verbindung zu bringen. Dabei soll am Ende zu erkennen sein, inwiefern die sich
ändernden gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen auf die Grundstruktur der Netzwerke
auswirken und welche Folgen für die nächsten Generationen im Bezug auf Altenpflege
und –unterstützung entstehen können.
