This third edition has a title modification, in that the previous two editions were titled Multicultural Aspects of Disabilities: A Guide to Understanding and Assisting Minorities in the Rehabilitation Process. This edition is titled Multicultural Aspects of Human Behavior: A Guide to Understanding Human Cultural Development. The reason for the title modification is to expand and emphasize cultural impacts with regard to human behavior and in doing so the goal is to identify factors which impact cultural development and cultural perceptions of various groups of people such as persons with disabilities, ethnic/racial minorities, women, the elderly, as well as gays, lesbians and people of different religious denominations. Each chapter has an informative outline of the content. Chapters 1 and 2 establish the meaning of culture and understanding the human behavior. Chapter 3 addresses discrimination. Chapter 4 discusses religion. Chapters 6-9 review the African, Asian, Hispanic Americans and the American Indians. Chapter 10 presents some history of the battles women have faced throughout the years. Chapter 11 addresses the African, Asian, Hispanic American and American Indian elderly. The concluding chapter defines the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people and their cultural evolution. This third edition continues the theme of providing information with regard to factors that impact the lives of racial/ethnic minorities as well as women and the elderly in America; however, the updates and addition of new chapters will make the text a more complete discussion of cultural information needed by professional helpers as they work with their clients and patients.

This updated and expanded third edition examines the significant changes impacting children in our society and is a significant revision of the second edition, presented 10 years previous. During that period, there have been many important “firsts” in the United States: the first African-American president; the first attempt at a health care system that includes everyone; the first time for gay marriage sanctioned by the federal government; numerous firsts in medical care; a growing globalization; and the ongoing technology revolution changing lives from day to day. At the same time, however, there have been reactionary pulls that have halted progress in many critical areas such as income inequality, racism, poverty, violence, terrorist acts, and critical flaws in the educational and criminal justice systems that continue to have disastrous consequences for children. The chapters in the book discuss the cost in human terms of some of the missing opportunities for urban children and youth and illustrate the impact of social welfare policies on children, their families, and on the broader society. To better prepare social workers to meet some of the pressing needs to children, three completely new chapters have been added to this edition: “Beyond School and Community Violence: Providing Environments Where Children Thrive”; “Urban Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Children”; and “Substance Use by Urban Children.” In addition to sections on “Economic, Social, and Environmental Factors Impacting on Urban Children,” and “Familial Factors Impacting on Urban Children,” a new section, “Behavioral and Physical Health and Urban Children,” has been introduced. This new edition provides a significant resource for students and professionals in social work, family counseling, human services, psychology, and criminal justice. Most importantly, the various chapters in this text will help social workers and social work students recognize the nature o

The Sociology of Deviance Book

  • ISBN 10 : 9780398090807

The Sociology of Deviance Excerpt :

This timely second edition remains essentially the same in overall organization and chapter layout and titles. New to the book is updated data and facts from empirical research and government and agency reports. Some information in some chapters was retained from the first edition if it was deemed still relevant and interesting. The definition of deviance has been modified to be more in line with standard understandings of the term which frequently describe deviance as violations of social norms. The word “differences” remains part of the definition and implies differences in attitudes, lifestyles, values, and choices that exist among individuals and groups in society. The concept of deviance is no longer treated as a label in itself, also placing the definition of the term more in alignment with its standard usage. The title of the book remains the same and “tradition” still implies the book covers areas that have long been addressed in deviance texts such as addictions, crime, and sexual behaviors, to name a few. The term “stigma” is retained for two reasons: it is in honor of Erving Goffman, a giant in the discipline of sociology who offered much to the study of differences, and it is used to accentuate the importance of societal reaction in a heterogeneous society. In this updated edition, every attempt has been made to respond to input from colleagues and students concerning text content and writing style. Chapters still include “In Recognition” or comments that honor scholars whose research and professional interests are related to the chapters under study. Effective case studies are again included in the chapters. Considerable effort went into decisions of what was to be added, changed, maintained, and deleted from the first edition, resulting in meaningful modifications throughout the book.
