Topic

One of the terms we often see in the media is “family values.” In Chapter 13, page 353 of the

textbook, Friedman et al. define family values as “a system of ideas, attitudes, and beliefs about

the worth of an entity or concept that consciously and unconsciously bind together the members

of a family in a common culture (Parad & Caplan, 1965).”

Clearly, the true meaning of “family values” is complex. However, one thing is clear: family

values serve as general guides to behavior and they shape the family’s patterns of behavior

related to health care. Beginning on page 355, there is a detailed discussion of American Core

Values. One of these values (see page 363) relates to quality of life and maintaining health.

Friedman et al. indicate that maintaining health is becoming a major value within the American

culture along with people actively participating in their healthcare decisions rather than passively

receiving healthcare intervention.

a) From your professional and/or personal experiences, give one example of a person or

family whose health-related behaviors appeared to have been driven by this American

Core Value, and identify the social class, culture/ethnicity, and age range of the primary

person(s) involved.

b) From your professional and /or personal experiences, give one example of a person or

family whose health-related behaviors appeared to have been driven by an alternative

value in which healthcare intervention was passively received. Identify the social class,

culture/ethnicity, and age range of the primary person(s) involved.
