Understand human development in the context of the social environment with MACRO SYSTEMS IN THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT! By using social-psychological literature and sociological theory to examine infancy through later adulthood, this social work text shows you the importance of organizations, communities, society, and global influences in assessing human behavior in the social environment. Cases found throughout the text help you master and apply the material by portraying realistic situations.
This text focuses on the importance of organizations, communities, society, and global influences in assessing human behavior in the social environment. It challenges students to probe the larger social context when viewing the complexities of human development. Designed especially to address the call for greater infusion of macro-level content into social work education, the book is ideal for courses on human behavior in the social environment and macro practice. To facilitate the integration of theory and content, the authors use different theoretical orientations to organize the chapters. These are followed by an analysis of developmental issues, a case example, a section in which macro-level influences are highlighted, a reintegration of theory section, and suggested activities.
