Description


"Human Behavior and the Social Environment, 5/e, "explores, compares, and contrasts both traditional and alternative models in examining human behavior and the social environment. This text is part of the "Connecting Core Competencies Series," designed to guide students in becoming skilled at the Council on Social Work's core competencies. Each chapter reflects and integrates the latest CSWE competency standards (EPAS). End-of-chapter assessment reinforces this integration, and MySocialWorkLab provides activites and supports the mastery of CSWE's core competencies through activities, tests, an extensive library of videos and cases, and much more.
