The fourth edition of Human Behavior in the Social Environment takes a life course perspective to give a concise, compact treatment of human behavior. This edition includes the DSM - 5, the 2015 EPAS competencies, and a new chapter that explores the future of social work and some of the emerging issues facing the profession.
The text also comes with a rich companion website that includes support materials and six unique cases that encourage students to learn by doing and to apply their knowledge of human behavior to best practices. Go to www.routledgesw.com to explore the cases and additional resources.
