How to describe Sociopsychological Perspective?

Sociopsychological Perspective is described as how people feel about themselves and others in the area where they reside. They can feel like part of the community or feel like an outsider. Do they accept each other or not? Do they support each other or function as a different unit? In Fabian’s case, his neighbors liked him until he started a business in the neighborhood; now, the area is more like a commercial area. He changed the community, and his neighbors did not like it. His neighbors did not care that he needed the money, and they did not support the change. His neighbor could off join him in his venture. Fabian tried to make a living, but his neighbors did not understand because they care more about their neighborhood, the appearance, and houses. According to the text, “Competition concerns how community members vie for “the use of land…[and] seek advantage of place’ for commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential purposes” (Fellin, 2001b, p. 119).” (Zastrow, C. H. & Kirst-Ashman, K. K. 2016).

Another perspective that would offer a better solution is the human ecology perspective because it focuses on the relationship and how the quality of fabian life is better. His neighbors would not compete with him or be so selfish. Based on the text,” In any community, some population groups inevitably will have greater access than others.” (Zastrow, C. H. & Kirst-Ashman, K. K. 2016).
