Discussion Question: Do you believe that Talcott Parson’s Sick Role Theory, which is now over 60 years old, is still valid in today’s world (specifically in modern Western Society)? As an example, think of someone who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer after 40 or 50 years of heavy smoking. Parsons said that this individual is expected to assume the role of the “sick person” seek treatment, follow medical instructions and do what society expects for him or her to get well – this is called “assuming the sick role”. How would you feel if that person continued to smoke, adopting an attitude that they’ll eventually find a cure or “I can’t imagine life without smoking”. According to Parson’s theory, this person has rejected the Sick Role and is not deserving of our compassion.
