EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Author Elizabeth D. Hutchison's multidimensional framework (Person, Environment, and Time) for human behavior theory courses helps instructors organize course material in a meaningful way for students.

The companion text, Dimensions of Human Behavior: The Changing Life Course, covers the dimension of human behavior across time. Together, these two textbooks provide the most comprehensive coverage available for theory courses. Order the books together with bundle ISBN: 978-1-4129-8881-0. This core text is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate Human Behavior and the Social Environment courses in departments of social work and psychology. "Through its close-knit, and yet, broad and comprehensive treatment of all aspects of human behavior, Dimensions of Human Behavior: Person and Environment achieves its superiority over the one-paradigm human behavior books that run into unavoidable stereotypes of human behavior, and leave out necessary details about the investigated case, because of the limited scope of a single paradigm. It is indeed ‘a multidimensional approach for multifaceted social work’. It is strengthened further by its multicultural and global case studies, and state of the art developments in the social and behavioral sciences that have been added to the new edition composing another dimension in which the book casts human behavior. Therefore, I daresay, Dimensions of Human behavior: Person and Environment makes the fascinating subject of human behavior even more intriguing." - Alfred T. Kisubi, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This comprehensive text integrates multiple dimensions of the human experience in a reader-friendly style and provides the interface between developmental theory and practice. Human Behavior and the Social Environment, 1/e, introduces and incorporates current research on the biological, psychological, socio-cultural, and spiritual dimensions of human behavior throughout the life-cycle. The authors provide an appropriate focus on contemporary perspectives that are central to the practice of social work, such as trauma, neurobiological underpinnings of behavior, chronic illness and disability. They pay particular attention to models of racial, ethnic, class, gender and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender identity development; to the influences of gender, sexual orientation, social class, race and culture on family structure and function, and to issues pertinent to a variety of post-modern family forms. The text explores macro influences of groups, communities and organizations in individual chapters. It also contains a chapter on social welfare policy that examines the impact of specific policies at each stage of the life-cycle and paves the way for new directions in research and future directions in policy and practice. Any market interested in a comprehensive text that integrates the multiple dimensions of the human experience in a reader-friendly style and provides the interface between developmental theory and practice.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Genetic differences in humans, like those between individuals of any animal or plant species and those between species, are all products of the evolutionary development of the living world. Th ese diff erences, with their behavioral consequences, can only be understood in the light of evolution. Our understanding of evolution, however, has itself evolved. Th e Darwin-Wallace theory of evolution appeared in the nineteenth century. Since then, development of evolutionary thought has gone through several stages. Th e contributions in this volume describe those stages. The first four decades after Darwin were dominated by studies in comparative anatomy, embryology, systematics, zoogeography, phytogeography, and paleontology, all intended to discover and examine the evidences of evolution. But the phylogenies of the animal and plant kingdoms, that is, the history of the linkages of animal and plant organisms as they change through time, were less well documented. In particular, the phylogeny of humans is still not completely known. The period following World War Two saw acceleration of activity in fi elds in and bordering on behavioral genetics. Research in neuroendocrinology showed that higher cortical centers could infl uence and be infl uenced by the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and gonads. Genetic diversity in the function of these organs had obvious consequences for social and cultural behavior. Th e failure of some early and long-reinforced attempts at conditioning by students of comparative animal behavior showed species-specifi c innate behavior could not be ignored in any theory that attempts to combine psychology and anthropology. Th is classic volume summarizes the development of evolutionary thinking, and describes how what we know about genetic diversity links up with research on human behavior. J. N. Spuhler was known for his pioneering work in the department of anthropological genetics. He taught in many universities including Ohio State University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Mexico. He received the National Academy of Science award for scientific reviewing and his work has appeared in scholarly journals including: Journal of Anthropological Research, Annual Review of Anthropology, and American Journal of Physical Anthropology.

Ashford and LeCroy’s groundbreaking book offers students a balanced, integrated introduction to human behavior in the social environment. Lively and comprehensive, this book succeeds by helping students connect foundation knowledge with practice concerns. Study tables and concept maps (for each discussion of behavior in the development chapters) clarify major phases of biopsychosocial development across the life span. The authors take an integrative, multidimensional approach, discussing integrative practice, theory, treatment, and services throughout. This framework gives readers a concrete tool for assessing human behavior from a perspective that truly reflects the values and knowledge base of the social work profession. The text presents solid coverage of foundation knowledge, integrates the biopsychosocial dimensions for assessing social functioning, and offers case studies to illuminate the applied aspects of HBSE content. The authors successfully combine a multidimensional approach with consistent attention to diversity, giving readers a meaningful, exciting learning experience.
