In terms of experimental manipulations of DSC, obtaining the ethical board's consent can be tedious. Indeed, according to some authors Kelman, ; Bok, ; Clarke, ; Herrera, ; Pittenger, deceiving participants is difficult to justify ethically. This objection on the use of deception can undermine any attempt to seriously study DSC, as deception can be a valuable methodological asset Bortolotti and Mameli, , especially with such an elusive subject.
Furthermore, research on new grounds require new techniques and methods on which ethicists can put limits, to ensure that they do not cause harm to participants Root Wolpe, As with any new technology, methods focused on inducing dramatic-like changes can be perceived as having unsuspected risks. In order to truly understand the interplay between individuals and their context, social psychological theories must take into account that we live in a constantly changing world.
REPORT on a European Pillar of Social Rights
Through increasing the focus on social change, we could combine, on the one hand, sociology's emphasis on the importance of social change with, on the other hand, psychology's emphasis on the importance of complex individual processes. As a result, my theoretical proposal aims at bringing together sociology, where social change is central, and psychology, where rigorous scientific methods allow us to study the psychological processes of individuals living in changing social contexts. In general, more research on the concept of social change is needed so that we can help predict, prevent, and minimize the negative impact of social change.
If psychologists and sociologists work together to move toward developing a psychology of social change, perhaps we could come to better understand and help people, like Zoia, who lost almost everything they had, consequently improving the quality of millions of lives experiencing DSC.

The Impact of Macro Social Systems on Ethnic Minorities in the United States
An event has the potential to bring social change Sewell, , be it incremental or dramatic. In contrast to social change, with the event, the disruption of the normal might only be temporary and not significant in time. From my understanding of the literature, there are as many conceptions of social structure as there are scientists working on that concept.
Here, the definitions often described normative behaviors or the roles of individuals rather than the role played by social institutions e. This duality lunched a debate in sociology that was reflected not only in Gidden's work but also in others sociologists that have devoted their writings to defining social structure e.
For example, Porpora reports four principal ways of conceptualizing social structure that reflect either of these conceptions. To add to that complexity, some researchers e. Because of the lack of clarity, or maybe because the definition of social structure points to different aspects of the social structure, scientists often avoid defining social structure in their papers, and thereby contribute to the general confusion. Not that the other aspects or levels of social structure are not important e. Abrams, D. How does macroeconomic change affect social identity and vice versa?
