Summary

The study of sociology exposes students to a number of important theoretical models and methodological techniques. How to adapt these models and techniques for use in everyday life-from social situations to the community or business world-is the subject of this innovative and timely text. Authors Stephen F. Steele, AnneMarie Scarisbrick-Hauser, and William J. Hauser encourage students to test the theories and models that are the underpinnings of sociology in a real-world social laboratory, and to use the results to develop and implement practical solutions to social situations and problems.

Elegant and economical in its approach, Solution-Centered Sociology is an ideal introduction to the world of applied sociology. It provides students with an applied view of the many social factors that affect everyday life and offers a number of tools to help find solutions to issues that arise in the social world. Written in a style that is both encouraging and pragmatic, Solution-Centered Sociology is intended to be continually drawn upon, like a tool kit, to help students better view their world and to develop practical uses of sociology. As such, it is not only intended as a core text in an applied sociology course, but ideal as a supplement in basic courses such as Social Problems or the Introduction to Sociology.
