Enhance your purchase
Dimensions of Human Behavior: The Changing Life Course presents a current and comprehensive examination of human behavior across time using a multidimensional framework. Author Elizabeth D. Hutchison explores both the predictable and unpredictable changes that can affect human behavior through all the major developmental stages of the life course, from conception to very late adulthood. Aligned with the 2015 curriculum guidelines set forth by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Sixth Edition has been substantially updated with contemporary issues related to gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and social class and disability across the lifespan.
"This is a well-written book about all of the facets of human behavior--something everyone is advised to know about. With each edition, I find that the content is thoroughly updated and its multiculturalism is increasingly expanded, making this an exceptional text."
--Rose M. Perez
"I just love this book! It is meticulously put together in a way that helps the reader understand every dimensional aspect of a person based on time. This book is very in-depth with explaining the basic concepts and reiterates them through the use of cases. I appreciate the implications for social work being implemented in each chapter."
--Annalease M. M. Gibson
"The perfect textbook--it covers everything in a simple and straightforward way and gives social work students the introduction to understanding theory that they can then learn in depth in advanced courses."
"This book is very well written, superbly informative, user-friendly, and replete with invaluable student and instructor resources. I would recommend it, unconditionally, to anyone teaching undergraduate HBSE."
"This is the most comprehensive and succinct reference to human development across the life span. It is an excellent reference for human behavior specialists and provides timeless information that can be accessed for a more comprehensive assessment of children/family."

Completely worn outReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 24, 2021
I rented this textbook. It must have been found at a crime scene. This isn't on the author...it's on Amazon. This was the worst textbook of all time relative to condition. There were food stains on every other page and writing/highlighting/notes on every one where stains wouldn't fit! Ridiculous! The rental price wasn't amazingly significant from the purchase price. Again...this is on Amazon. Cringe..

Needs to update informationReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 3, 2019
The emphasis in this book was on the study of different minority groups throughout the United States. It did not include any information regarding Native Americans. The information that it did include came from the Census Bureau which does not include the life expectancy of Native Americans living on the reservations. It was disappointing to see a whole group of people left out.

Cover was dirty and sticky. Pages were torn and ripped.Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 22, 2023
Rentals should not be sent to a new customer in poor condition. I am requesting a refund and am very disappointed that this book was sent to me this way.

Did not work for meReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 26, 2019
Cant say anything good about it. I used it for about a month. Twice a day. The warts gets white when you apply and let it dry... but no impact on it. Maybe just takes longer but the bottle is 80% done... just not effective.
New book sliced by box cutter before shipmentReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 5, 2021
Before new book was shipped and shrink wrapped, it was sliced by box cutter. See attached pictures. The plastic wrap was not sliced, so book was sliced beforehand. Returned book and was given full refund.
