Human Behavior and the Social Environment II

SWK 240
Social Work

This course examines the complexities of human behavior through a macro lens using a multi-dimensional theoretical approach, by introducing theoretical perspectives that show how biology, psychology, spirituality, and society influence human behavior. Students will be introduced to current theoretical perspectives that are relevant to the various disciplines, as they relate to human behavior. Special attention will be given to the person-in-environment perspective, as students will explore how the physical environment, diversity, culture, social institutions, and social movements influence human behavior.
