Description

In a fresh, elegant, and accessible manner, Human Behavior and the Social Environment, Micro Level explores the nuances of the biological, psychological, cultural, and spiritual dimensions of our social lives. Drawing on examples from social work, psychology, literature, philosophy, and current events, it richly illustrates human development and behavior, both normal and abnormal. Katherine van Wormer skillfully integrates recent research ranging from brain imaging to international surveys on happiness, lending extraordinary insight into our drives and motivations. The result is a singular textbook that truly bridges theory and practice by revealing the patterns and paradoxes of our behavior in the social context. -- Provided by publisher
