Additional Information

A unique approach to human behavior

that integrates and interprets the latest research from cell to society

Incorporating principles and findings from molecular biology, neuroscience, and psychological and sociocultural sciences, Human Behavior employs a decidedly integrative biosocial, multiple-levels-of-influence approach. This approach allows students to appreciate the transactional forces shaping life course opportunities and challenges among diverse populations in the United States and around the world.

Human Behavior includes case studies, Spotlight topics, and Expert's Corner features that augment the theme of each chapter. This book is rooted in the principles of empirical science and the evidence-based paradigm, with coverage of:

  • Genes and behavior
  • Stress and adaptation
  • Executive functions
  • Temperament
  • Personality and the social work profession
  • Social exchange and cooperation
  • Social networks and psychosocial relations
  • Technology
  • The physical environment
  • Institutions
  • Belief systems and ideology

Unique in its orientation, Human Behavior proposes a new integrative perspective representing a leap forward in the advancement of human behavior for the helping professions.

"This book is like no other HBSE textbook that I have used in my teaching career. Traditional HBSE content is included within the chapters, and the authors do an excellent job of explaining complex perspectives on human development from the genome to the brain to temperament and risks in the environment. The book challenges faculty and students to look at 21st-century HBSE."

—Carmen Ortiz Hendricks, DSW, ACSW, Dorothy and David I. Schachne Dean, Wurzweiler School of Social Work, Yeshiva University

"This book represents a changing of the guard and a new era of thinking. Vaughn, DeLisi, and Matto have essentially replaced the so-called classic texts with their comprehensive and integrative review of the most current and relevant theory and research that is essential in understanding the complexities of human behavior. Educators will be hard pressed to find another text that will engage, challenge, and excite students in the way this book does."

—Brian Perron, PhD, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, University of Michigan

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I have the privilege of studying under Dr. Vaughn, and I love his work and I love this book. It's a really good, easy to understand introduction to how to integrate traditional and social sciences to understand why people do things, and why things happen to certain people. I found it a great starting place for figuring out how your branch of academia can benefit from, aid, and work with other branches to enhance our understanding of human behavior. Because I want to integrate genetics, physiological stress responses, and learned behaviors and temperament into my research on childhood victimization, this was very useful, and will remain a reference book for me over the next few years.
On a more personal note, I really enjoy reading the book. It's darned interesting!
Reads like a textbook. Gives a great foundation on neuroanatomy and incorporates the life course into each chapter. This is a must-read.
