Description

Product Description

The main objective of social work is to facilitate positive changes in individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. The first step in this change process is accurate assessment � and that''s the primary focus of UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT. Focusing on individual behavior within families and other systems, this book will help you understand the underlying reasons why people act the way they do. You''ll learn about biological, psychological, and social development at different lifespan stages, as well as about the benefits of strengths and empowerment approaches to social work. To further prepare you for your career, this edition''s content aligns with the core competencies and recommended behaviors outlined in the current Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

This textbook is poor on a number of different levels. The writing is poor, with frequent errors. It is out of step with current research, and on numerous issues uses inflammatory and inappropriate language. There is a discussion of how to use punishment more effectively, including a distribution of using punishment on a severely intellectually disabled child for crawling in an attempt to encourage them to walk. My concerns about this book being used in social work classes are too many for me to address here, as I must get back to reading it for class.
