Year: 2005

 Contemporary Human Behavior Theory: A Critical Perspective for Social Work, is the first HSBE text to approach the subject from a comparative theory perspective, providing coverage of the most current and contemporary theories as well as traditional theories. A consistent framework for analysis is provided for all of the theoretical systems that are covered. This text encourages students to develop critical thinking skills in analyzing and comparing theories, and includes contemporary developments in traditional lifespan theory, theories of political economy, and a separate chapter on transpersonal theory (Ch. 12). Each chapter includes coverage of the research that supports a particular theory, as well as an analysis of the validity of that research; each chapter also includes a discussion of updated “Contemporary Issues.”
New features to the 2nd edition include updated content in all chapters, as well as new content on:
•    Ecofeminism
•    Neurobiology, neurotransmission and behavior
•    Feminist Standpoint Theory
•    Theories of bisexual and transgender identity development
•    The role of shame in women’s development
•    Ethnic/cultural identity development and cultural competence
New theoretical content added to the textbook represents the most contemporary and cutting edge content in theory that is not usually found in other human behavior or theory textbooks
