Description

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
