Dimensions of Human Behavior: The Changing Life Course 6th Edition

Dimensions of Human Behavior: The Changing Life Course presents a current and comprehensive examination of human behavior across time using a multidimensional framework. Author Elizabeth D. Hutchison explores both the predictable and unpredictable changes that can affect human behavior through all the major developmental stages of the life course, from conception to very late adulthood. Aligned with the 2015 curriculum guidelines set forth by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Sixth Edition has been substantially updated with contemporary issues related to gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and social class and disability across the lifespan.

About the Author

Elizabeth D. Hutchison, MSW, Ph.D., received her MSW from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis and her Ph.D. from the University at Albany, State University of New York. She was on the faculty in the Social Work Department at Elms College from 1980 to 1987 and served as chair of the department from 1982 to 1987. She was on the faculty in the School of Social Work at Virginia Commonwealth University from 1987 to 2009, where she taught courses in human behavior and the social environment, social work and social justice, and child and family policy; she also served as field practicum liaison. She has been a social worker in health, mental health, aging, and child and family welfare settings. She is committed to providing social workers with comprehensive, current, and useful frameworks for thinking about human behavior. Her other research interests focus on child and family welfare. She lives in Reno, Nevada, where she is a hands-on grandmother and an activist on local justice issues.

Reviews about the ebook:

  • Roger Delgado:
    This is a well-written book about all of the facets of human behavior―something everyone is advised to know about. With each edition, I find that the content is thoroughly updated and its multiculturalism is increasingly expanded, making this an exceptional text.
  • Eclecticways:
    The book was in great condition and exactly what was needed for my course.
  • Michelle:
    -I read this book for an MSW course and yet I realize this would have been better paired with the previously read “Dimensions of Human Behavior: Person and Environment.” The information seemed repetitive, yet I am sure if paired together the texts may have flowed nicely.
    -It was helpful to see a collection of many theories together in one place, especially the charts which were both organized and clear. These were helpful reminders of information by popular theorists, tying together many theories that I hadn’t fully organized in this way before.
    -It was frustrating to purchase this book after realizing that I know this information from previous textbooks, research articles, and courses I have taken!
  • Rose M. Perez:
    The perfect textbook―it covers everything in a simple and straightforward way and gives social work students the introduction to understanding theory that they can then learn in-depth in advanced courses.
  • SUNG EUN JEONG:
    This book arrived on time and is very interesting. It is packed full of good information.
  • Ilze Earner:
    I just love this book! It is meticulously put together in a way that helps the reader understand every dimensional aspect of a person based on time. This book is very in-depth in explaining the basic concepts and reiterates them through the use of cases. I appreciate the implications for social work being implemented in each chapter.
