When looking at Social Problems we cannot ignore the three main theories of sociology to analyze those social problems. Functionalist focus on the functions and dysfunctions of society, such as high cost of health cost of health care and social security to future generations. Conflict theories focus on societies parts for limited resources, or the creation of inequivalent such as richer vs. poorer. Symbolic Interactionist focus on how certain groups are viewed or labeled in our society and our behavioral response to those perspectives. We look at how it affects the changes/shifts and meaning behind why we interact the way we do.
