Social context and youth health: understanding and mitigating exclusion

Social context and youth health: understanding and mitigating exclusion

(p.97) Chapter 7 Social context and youth health: understanding and mitigating exclusion
Evidence-based Public Health

M Judith Lynam

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers insights from a research programme that aims to extend our understanding of how social conditions contributing to health inequalities are experienced by teenagers, including teenagers at risk because of their social and material circumstances. It first locates the research in broader discourses on inequalities in health and then introduces the theoretical perspective that informed the study. The research is guided by Bourdieu's theoretical perspective, and was designed to identify the social processes and practices that contribute to, or mitigate, the impact of marginalization and social exclusion. The implications of these insights for policy and practice are discussed.

Keywords:   health research, social conditions, health inequalities, teenagers, social exclusion
