Referent Groups refer to the people (past, present, and future) in an individual's life who help guide the development of a SCWM and mediate social class behaviors.
Now that the intrapsychic framework for social class has been presented, the discussion turns toward elaborating on how classism operates as a product of the SCWM and the research and clinical implications of these theories.
Thus, a new conceptualization of classism is necessary to fit within a model of social class subjectivity (i.e., SCWM), CAP, and economic cultures.
Thus far, the major components (CAP, SCWM, and MCT) of our social class theory have been explicated.
Figure 2 illustrates the entire SCWM. Within this model, the social class worldview operates as the lens through which classism is perceived and operates in an individual's life.
The second level is the intrapsychic level, and this is where the SCWM exists.
The SCWM can also explain how some people may sometimes act in ways that tend to be "anticapitalist" and "antimaterialist." Because the social class worldview is oriented toward the accumulation of the symbols that are valued within a particular economic culture rather than toward income, cultural, human, and social capitals are still sought.
To further illustrate the operation of the SCWM and MCT, a case example is presented.
In the period the SCWMS was used, between May and August of 2013, 98 Waste Transport Control documents were created at site A and 131 WTC documents at site B.
To discuss the results of each site with the team assigned to the site, two critical evaluation meetings for the SCWMS results were held.
In presenting the indicators generated by SCWMS all participants indicated that they understood the meaning of each indicator.
The information generated by SCWMS aided management decisions and actions to improve waste management, as demonstrated by several improvement actions that were voluntarily undertaken as a result of the new information gathered.
