» What are you doing tonight? I’m going out to commit some sociology… The Sociological Imagination.

Sociological imagination is one of the interesting concepts in sociology that interlinks the personal and social lives of people.Certain comprehensive examples can help you connect with the term in a better manner.
What if we were to expand the Sociological Imagination to include the question of, "What role does society play when it comes to treating and working with people living with PTSD and mental illness?"

More importantly, what are we waiting for? --- Clip from "No Kidding, Me 2!" - Directed by Joe Pantoliano
