'Elizabeth Hutchison's latest edition of "Dimensions of Human Behavior" is a powerful text that captures our changing and developing lives as we each journey through our own distinct life course. The books calls our attention to the importance of the interactions of time, people, and environment as our ongoing life story is played out. As social workers, this text draws our attention to the need to better understand development as a cyclical process, unique for each person. Timely client system examples, diverse family development, and good social work implications and interventions are a few of the many strengths in this edition' - Susan Tebb, Dean, School of Social Service, Saint Louis University. This two-volume kit is composed of "Person and Environment, Second Edition" (ISBN: 0761987657) and "The Changing Life Course, Second Edition" (ISBN: 0761987649). "Dimensions of Human Behavior, Second Edition: Person and Environment" presents the time-honored person-in-environment approach to understanding human behavior. It provides a multi-theoretical analysis to help students recognize and examine the multiple dimensions of person and environment involved in human behavior. Like the first edition, the general approach of weaving powerful case studies with theory and research has been maintained, but all chapters have been updated to reflect recent census data, emerging social trends, and new developments in theory and research. This edition also pays greater attention to human diversity. "Dimensions of Human Behavior, Second Edition: The Changing Life Course" presents a life course perspective to help students recognize how multiple dimensions of person and environment work together with dimensions of time to produce patterns in unique life course journeys. It examines general patterns of human behavior in age-graded periods, sources of diversity in life course trajectories, and unique life stories. It is multidimensional in scope and current in theory and research. This completely revised second edition maintains the use of case studies to help students appreciate the diversity of life course trajectories, and all chapters have been updated to reflect social trends and new developments in theory and research. To reflect the trend toward finer gradations in life phases, this edition addresses nine age-graded periods instead of the six presented in the first edition: conception, pregnancy, and birth; infancy and toddlerhood; early childhood; middle childhood; adolescence; young adulthood; middle adulthood; late adulthood; and very late adulthood. "The Teaching Resources CD-ROM" (ISBN: 0-7619-8804-1) accompanying the texts provides a variety of supplementary materials. The CD includes a summary of each chapter in both texts. In addition, individual and group activities of relevance to chapter topics are proposed, as are selected readings, texts, videos and films. Also included are subjects for class discussion, as well as essay and multiple choice questions that challenge students' cognitive abilities of recall, reasoning, and application of social work theories, principles and practice issues.
