In this book you will find:

  • An overview of the issues related to human behavior and the social environment that are important to understand for practice, updated with current and relevant information on important topics in social work practice and expanded to clarify complex issues.
  • Careful organization of chapters to first present theoretical perspectives on the human condition, and then provide information on basic facets of human development, encouraging students to use conceptual lenses to inform their practice with individuals at different stages of life.
  • Particular emphasis on the ways in which poverty and diversity affect human development and behavior.
  • The opportunity to see how the concepts fit into social work practice using case examples that open each chapter and are referred to throughout the chapter.
  • Ideal for use in online as well as hybrid course instruction in addition to traditional “bricks and mortar” classes.

In the custom companion website you will find:

Six unique, in-depth, interactive, fictional cases with dynamic characters and real-life situations that students can reach from any computer and that provide a “learning by doing” format unavailable with any other text. Students will have an advantage unlike any other in their social work training. Instructors are encouraged use the case studies to enrich the learning experience. Learn more about the cases »
