Explore traditional and alternative models in human behavior
Human Behavior and the Social Environment
challenges students to use the traditional and alternative paradigm framework to evaluate and understand the relationship between theories of human behavior and the social environment and their use in social work practice. Through this examination, readers will better understand the people they will work with on individual, family, group, organizational, community, and global levels. By engaging with critical issues in social work and human behavior, students will recognize the range of social systems in which people live and the ways these systems promote or deter people in their health and wellbeing.

Updated with a new organization and emphasis on critical thinking, the 7th Edition represents the most comprehensive and in-depth revision since its original publication. New chapters explore the role of neuroscience (Chapter 6) and interplay of identity, diversity, and oppression issues (Chapter 7) in the context of development. New content is included on such topics as the use of technology, evidence-based practice interventions, and environmental social work. Thoroughly updated, every chapter includes information about some of the most pressing issues concerning social work and human behavior in dynamic interaction with the larger physical and social environments of today and tomorrow.
