Sociological and social psychological perspectives are used to inform an analysis of individuals, social interaction, and society that is sure to engage readers in self-reflection, generate discussion, and enhance knowledge of key social processes.The book s unique combination of full-length chapters and supplemental readings introduce the field of study; explain how self and identities arise, are negotiated and performed; examine change over the life cycle and in clinical settings; consider several instructive identities (gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and class); and, finally, reflect upon intersecting identities, the complexities of self, and future directions.
