Overview

Hock's Human Sexuality, Second Edition, takes an interpersonal approach to human sexuality. The central message of the text is developing and defining your own sexual philosophy. Every chapter begins with actual student questions. Throughout the chapter the questions are answered and new ones are posed--encouraging students to think critically, analyze, and use the material in personally relevant ways. Hock takes a psychosocial approach, focusing on those topics that are most critical and of greatest relevance to the students' personal lives, their interactions with others, and how these topics affect them emotionally. This student-centered approach is incorporated into the text's discussions of all areas of sexuality--psychological, social and biological (including medical, health, anatomical and physiological). Sensitivity to diverse groups, not only in terms of race and ethnicity, but also in terms if sexual orientation and age, allows all students to feel as comfortable and open as possible.

Meet the Author

Roger Hock has been teaching psychology for over 20 years and human sexuality for over 15 years. Human sexuality is his favorite class to teach and is consistently one of the most popular among students. He believes that Human Sexuality is an essential course for college students because the topics covered are fundamental to our lives and our identities as humans. He has been known to “declare” that, if he had the power to do so, he would make the human sexuality course a requirement for all undergraduate college and university students. Why? Because the material in this course touches everyone, in countless ways, throughout their lives. But, more importantly, most students, upon entering college as adults, are lacking a correct and current understanding of at least some, if not many, key issues that comprise the complexities of humans as sexual beings. Sex education in grades K-12 is frequently incomplete, inadequate, and even misleading, and not all parents are willing or able to impart the necessary and correct information to their children. Students in higher education clearly need and deserve the knowledge they acquire in this class.
