This text encourages students to develop critical thinking skills in analyzing and comparing theories, and includes contemporary developments in traditional lifespan theory, theories of political economy, and a separate chapter on transpersonal theory.

It is also a valuable supplementary text in direct practice courses. It is exceptionally well written and conceptualized."; -Steven Applewhite, University of Houston ";I see many strengths in this text. Most importantly, the text covers material that I believe is critical in social work education. There simply is no other text that I have found that covers this content."; -Beverly Black, Wayne State University New to This Edition New features in the second edition include updated content in all chapters, as well as new content on: bull; bull;Neurobiology, neurotransmission, and behavior bull;Theories of bisexual and transgender identity development bull;Ethnic/cultural identity development and cultural competence bull;Ecofeminism, Feminist Standpoint Theory bull;The role of shame in womenrs"s development bull;New theoretical content added to the textbook represents the most contemporary and cutting-edge content in theory that is not usually found in other human behavior or theory textbooks.
