Summary

This unique text provides a framework for evaluating various Human Behavior theories, providing a context for exploring social work practice through varying levels of social systems. This revision places current theories of human behavior in a systems context. It is based upon a generalist practice foundation and includes practice examples that help students understand the underlying theory. The text examines the basic concepts in each of the various system sizes: the individual, the social group, the family, the organization, and the community. It includes expanded coverage of spirituality, diversity, values and ethics, social and economic justice/oppression, populations-at-risk, and other areas.
