A City Guide To Mingguang for g. Eiser Radley for being too individualistic in focus, too concerned with individual aspects at the expense of the social. This book hopes to address some of these concerns by addressing wider influences on health and illness such as culture, lifespan and socio-economic variables. Humans do not operate in a vacuum but are interacting social beings shaped, modelled and reinforced in their thoughts, behaviour and emotions by people close to them, by less known people, by politicians, by their culture, and even by the era in which they live. Consider, for example, women and work stress ? this was not an issue in the s, when society neither expected nor particularly supported women to work, whereas in the twenty-first century we have a whole new arena of women’s health issues that in part may relate to the way women’s roles have shifted in society. Another criticism aimed at health psychology in the early twenty-first century, is that we have focused more on illness than on health e.g. A City Guide To Mingguang 2016.
