Description:

"Elizabeth Hutchison's latest edition of Dimensions of Human Behavior is a powerful text that captures our changing and developing lives as we each journey through our own distinct life course. The books calls our attention to the importance of the interactions of time, people, and environment as our ongoing life story is played out. As social workers, this text draws our attention to the need to better understand development as a cyclical process, unique for each person. Timely client system examples, diverse family development, and good social work implications and interventions are a few of the many strengths in this edition." --Susan Tebb, Dean, School of Social Service, Saint Louis University
