Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series: Human Behavior in the Social Environment, 5th Edition

  • ISBN10: 0-8400-2911-X

    ISBN13: 978-0-8400-2911-9

  • AUTHORS: Ashford/LeCroy - ©2013

This lively, comprehensive introduction to human behavior in the social environment offers a multidimensional approach to the topic, with discussion of integrative practice, theory, treatment, and services as well as matters pertaining to diversity addressed throughout the text. The text provides solid coverage of foundation knowledge, integrates the biopsychosocial dimensions for assessing social functioning, and offers case studies to illuminate the applied aspects of the content. Furthermore, as part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the fifth edition thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), thus helping you connect foundation knowledge with specific 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. This framework gives you a concrete tool for assessing human behavior from a perspective that reflects the values and knowledge base of the social work profession.
