What is sociometry and how can we apply it in our life?
"The word sociometry came from the Latin “socius,” meaning social and the Latin “metrum,” meaning measure. As these roots imply, sociometry is a way of measuring the degree of relatedness among people. Measurement of relatedness can be useful not only in the assessment of behavior within groups, but also for interventions to bring about positive change and for determining the extent of change. For a work group, sociometry can be a powerful tool for reducing conflict and improving communication because it allows the group to see itself objectively and to analyze its own dynamics. It is also a powerful tool for assessing dynamics and development in groups devoted to therapy or training."
Sue Daniel is the moderator for the May Lunchtime Reading Group. She will lead the discussion on Monir Rostampoor-Vajari's article, addressing the concept of sociometry and the application of it in our life.
