Social care

SOCIAL MEDICINE

In this section the reader will find terms related to family and personal support in social care, beginning before (e.g., baby daddy, baby mama) and after birth (allomother, baby hatch) to maturity and adulthood (Vicky Pollard syndrome, emancipated minor). This sampling includes vocabulary of the fortunate (the one percent, slow revolution) and those less so (vehicularly housed, shelterization), and showcases gems from various life situations ranging from the spotlight (heroin chic, glamour image, fame-obsessed culture) to complete obscurity (broken windows theory, migrant workers, jail diversion). This limited taster should give the reader an idea of the range of material being included in the modernmedicaldictionary database.
