“This book is a comprehensive collection of theories and perspectives regarding human behavior and the social environment. It is well written, easily accessible, organized, and timely.”

–Johanna Slivinske

“A thorough and well-synthesized overview of the central concepts necessary to understanding human behavior in the social environment. The text contains an excellent introduction to key issues and controversies and is presented very logically and intuitively.”

–Karl E. Johnson

“This is a book that truly considers the professional development of the students. The author makes a clear effort to show the applications of concepts and theories. The case studies are creative and relevant.”

–Alicia Borre

“A book that encourages critical thinking about theories and their relevance to practice, is critical for practice in today’s diverse and changing society, and is rooted within social work values and ethics.”

–Nicole Lee

“I think the greatest strength of this text is its readability. Sometimes students take courses that are interesting but the text is too academic, too researchy, and too archaic. This text is not only readable but also understandable.”

–Debra Mowery –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
