Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Using a biopsychosocial perspective, this book demonstrates that there are many ways of knowing, many methods of inquiry, and several perspectives that can guide one's understanding of human behavior. The conceptual frameworks upon which this book is based are resilience and meaning-making. Themes throughout are capacity, context and constitution. Pedagogical devices to aid the student include chapter overviews, case studies, and end of chapter questions.

Book News Annotation:

Saleebey (social welfare, U. of Kansas) writes primarily for graduate students, but hopes that practicing social workers will also be challenged by his ideas. He sets out a framework within which to think about the interaction between people's behavior and the society they live in. Among his topics are meaning-making, families, and maturing and aging in family and community.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Human behavior is a subject so vast that it would seem to defy one's ability to comfortably and confidently grasp its varieties, nuances, shapes, and dynamics. But in this wide-ranging and comprehensive survey of the contexts of human behavior, Dennis Saleebey examines the different social science approaches to understanding the way humans react to and are affected by their environment.

Using a biopsychosocial perspective, this book demonstrates that there are many paths of knowledge, many methods of inquiry, and many perspectives that can guide one's understanding of human behavior. Resilience (how we cope with trauma) and meaning-making (how we see and make sense of the world around us) provide the conceptual framework of the book. Saleebey examines a number of specific theories relevant to the biopsychosocial approach: part/whole analysis, psychodynamic theory, ecological theory, cognitive theory, and radical/critical theory. Human development is presented as a continuing interaction between individual, family, community, social institutions, and culture. Pedagogical devices to aid the student include chapter overviews, case studies, and meaning-making dialogues at the end of each chapter that pose questions for further thought.
