The first text to truly emphasize the dimensions of health and wellness in its discussions of human sexuality, HEALTHY SEXUALITY integrates a personal decision-making model throughout each chapter. HEALTHY SEXUALITY includes the latest research, as well as a number of activities that encourage students to develop critical thinking skills as they apply their knowledge. Case studies with critical thinking questions are integrated throughout the text and provide students the perfect opportunity to reflect on their own feelings and beliefs. HEALTHY SEXUALITY is the ideal less-expensive, comprehensive text for any human sexuality course. It encourages students to see the importance of the course as it relates to healthy living and positive attitudes.
