Book Excerpt : Using a chronological lifespan approach, bestselling UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT, 8e presents biological, psychological, and social development in the context of human behavior -- with an emphasis on strengths and empowerment approaches to social work. Looking at lifespan through the lens of social work theory and practice, the text covers human development and behavior theories within the context of family, organizational, and community systems. It delivers comprehensive coverage, providing readers insights into human behavior through intriguing case examples and thought-provoking narrative -- all within a lifespan framework. Such key issues as diversity, social justice, ethics, populations-at-risk, and more are interspersed throughout the entire text. A lucid, conversational writing style and rich case examples engage students in text material. The new edition also includes updated human diversity coverage, enhanced discussions of mezzo and macro practice, expanded ethics boxes, and an all-new four-color design.
