Summary

Dimensions of Human Behavior, Second Edition: The Changing Life Course presents a life course perspective to help students recognize how multiple dimensions of person and environment work together with dimensions of time to produce patterns in unique life course journeys. It examines general patterns of human behavior in age-graded periods, sources of diversity in life course trajectories, and unique life stories. It is multidimensional in scope and current in theory and research. This completely revised second edition maintains the use of case studies to help students appreciate the diversity of life course trajectories, and all chapters have been updated to reflect social trends and new developments in theory and research.

To reflect the trend toward finer gradations in life phases, this edition addresses nine age-graded periods instead of the six presented in the first edition: Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth; Infancy and Toddlerhood; Early Childhood; Middle Childhood; Adolescence; Young Adulthood; Middle Adulthood; Late Adulthood; and Very Late Adulthood.

Key Features:

  • Each chapter opens with orienting questions and narratives to help students think about why the content of the chapter is important for social workers and to put human faces on theory and research
  • Key concepts are summarized at the beginning of each chapter to give students an overview of what is to come
  • Margin notes are used to help students recognize and think critically about major themes of the life course perspective
  • Each chapter ends with a set of practice principles and learning exercises to anchor students' knowledge about human behavior and to assist students in active exploration of the ideas presented
  • Web resources are provided for each chapter
