Human behavior in the social environment : an ecological view by Carel B Germain( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Social Ecological Perspective of human behavior and development maintains a multidimensional focus on diverse persons in diverse environments. Carel B. Germain and Martin Bloom succinctly present this ecological view on the observation that human beings and their social environments always form a unified - though not necessarily harmonious - configuration; this configuration is the basic unit of analysis for understanding the factual material encountered in social work. Employing the person-and-environment approach to examine all aspects of human development, Human Behavior in the Social Environment discusses the biological, psychological, social, and cultural influences that shape the functioning of individuals, families, households, social groups, communities, and organizations, and relates how these collectives affect development over the life course. It also takes into account the expected and unexpected stresses, challenges, and life tasks that can influence development within social environments."--Jacket

Encyclopedia of primary prevention and health promotion( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public Health is one of the fastest growing university programs in the United States today. At the same time, the challenges that face the practitioner continue to grow and become more complex. This Encyclopedia of Primary Prevention and Health Promotion, 2nd ed covers more than 250 topics, taking a lifespan approach to the fields of public health and prevention. The encyclopedia is divided into four volumes: 1. Foundational Topics 2. Early Childhood and Childhood 3. Adolescence 4. Adulthood and Older Adulthood Within each volume, issues of illness prevention and health promotion (sometimes referred to as "positive psychology") are addressed in chapter-length entries arranged alphabetically. An international group of contributors synthesizes research focusing on improving the physical and mental health of the community as a whole. Each entry will have a structured format: Introduction, Definition of Terms, Prevalence, Theories, Empirical Studies, and Strategies (What Works, What Is Promising, What Doesn't Work). Each entry concludes with a look ahead to the coming decades of Public Health - what are the next steps to primary prevention and health promotion - and a "See Also" box recommending books, films, or articles by the editors for further reading. The encyclopedia is designed for practitioners, students, and researchers working in prevention, public health, and psychology. It will also serve as reference for practitioners in sociology, social work, nursing and medicine.

Changing lives : studies in human development and professional helping( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helping professionals must know the underlying structures and dynamics of human behavior and development if they are to offer efficacious and humane care. From across the broad spectrum of the social and health sciences, this anthology presents important recent writings about human experience. Changing Lives combines the presentation of basic information on human development with balanced descriptions of preventive and interventive methods of helping. The volume comprises forty-eight papers from a wide range of educators and health professionals - from psychology, sociology, and epidemiology to social work, nursing, and counseling - reflecting the multidisciplinary context in which the teaching of human development occurs. Bloom has included papers which provide illustrations of all the modes of helping - primary prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation; those which address the major theoretical orientations of our day - the ecological perspective, the behavioral approach, and psychodynamic theories; an "I-witness" report by a homeless woman; and clinical case studies and research reports. Each paper is self-contained and includes references for additional study. The readings are grouped around the eight elemental, or universal, human experiences: growth and development, communication, love/sexuality and pregnancy, and life and death. Each developmental phase, from infancy to old age, receives focused attention (as indicated by alternative tables of contents). Readers are introduced to the wide and penetrating scope of contemporary knowledge, and critical questions are raised about what helping professionals know and how this knowledge might best be applied in practice. -- from back cover
