859 Words 4 Pages
Group analysis allows one to discover several aspects of sociology in real time. Multiple concepts can be applied to the group depending on the environment and scenarios the group is in. These settings can be exclusively but not limited to educational, family, and religious environments, or a combination of all. For me, the family backdrop is one that has always had the biggest impression on me and allows me to apply the concepts learned in class.
Over the past 18 years, I have been closely observing the relationship of my older sister Marisha and my mother Mumina. Within this association, I have been able to see how sociological factors influence their interaction with one another. The reason I choose to observe them is because I have been in contact with them all my life and ideas come out easily when speaking about my family. In this paper, the relationship of Marisha and Mumina is analyzed to see what sociological concepts can be extrapolated from it, and to see what notions discussed in the class played a major in influencing the growth of their love for one another.
