9781412988797: Dimensions of Human Behavior: Person and Environment, 4th Edition

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. This EPAS-ready text provides students with a comprehensive and readable global perspective on the person and environment construct, weaving powerful case studies with recent innovations in theory and research.

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

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 4th Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dimensions of Human Behavior: Person and Environment, Fourth Edition , is the revision of a highly successful text for a core course area in the social work field. This volume and its companion, provide the most comprehensive coverage available for the social work theory courses. The book(s) are unique in that they provide faculty with an organizing framework which is currently not available in other texts. These books break down the core content along three primary dimensions: Person, Environment and Time. This book covers the biological dimension (person) and the social factors (environment) that impact human development and behavior. Changes to this edition include the following: Introduction to a new critical thinking/ethical decision-making feature to help students think critically how content can be applied to practice situations; new and updated case material; new topical coverage such as greater emphasis on diversity, EBP, positive psychology, mindfulness, international and political changes in the social environment, postmodern theories, and information technology; updated photos that complement key ideas in the text; revised and enhanced student and instructor ancillary materials; and, stylistic design changes for a thinner, sleeker book.
