A bestselling textbook on the biological, psychological and social aspects of human behavior, Understanding Human Behavior and the Social Environment by Charles Zastrow and Karen Kirst-Ashman is now on its 8th edition, still retaining its chronological lifespan approach in presenting the subject. The book focuses on behavior and human development, as well as the theories that surround both subjects in an organizational, familial, and societal context. Written by acclaimed professors and social work practitioners Charles Zastrow and Karen Kirst-Ashman, the book is a true authority in human behavior and development. Zastrow is known for authoring The Practice of Social Work, Social Problems: Issues and Solutions, Understanding Human Behavior and the Social Environment, and Social Work with Groups. Kirst-Asman has also written over 6 social work textbooks, along with countless articles, reviews and publications on the subject. Their collaboration – Understanding Human Behavior and the Social Environment (ISBN 9780495603740) – consists of 16 chapters and stars with an introduction to human behavior and the social environment. The authors then discuss infancy and childhood, adolescence and young adulthood, middle adulthood, and late adulthood. There is special emphasis on the biological, psychological, and social development of a person, plus sections on racism, ethnocentrism, gender, identity, gender expression and sexism. The book also tackles sexual orientation, human development in the social, biological, and psychological context, and the sociological aspects of late adulthood. This comprehensive reference is directed towards students taking up social psychology courses, as well as other courses related to human services and social work.
