The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment helps social workers firmly grasp developing issues in human behavior theories. It provides an outlet for empirically based articles about human behavior theory that facilitate social workers' practice goals. This innovative journal is the first to address the complexities of human behavior in relation to social work and its relevancy to practice. This makes it an essential resource for classes in human behavior in the social environment. Articles provide you with groundbreaking, up-to-date information on developments in empirically based human behavior theory. They address conceptual and empirical foci which study human behavior as a complex phenomenon. Supported theories target specific behaviors for change, possess clarity by describing in detail the intended change(s), predict the change(s), and facilitate the desired behavioral change(s) through implementation of the model theory. The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment guides your efforts to increase or decrease certain client behaviors by determining the extent to which specific theories add to practice knowledge. You learn of theories that: explain and predict worker and client behaviors in interactional situations where services are provided, explain what is involved in forming your relationships with your clients, discuss the behaviors that are involved in the attempt to influence client behavior and how and when you should exhibit them, make valid assumptions about explaining and predicting behavior, address procedures for relapse prevention. Any theories subscribed to and recommended for practice and course instruction in the Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment are supported by the tests of predictability, validity, reliability, and retest reliability and will be evaluated according to the same criteria by which all scientific theories are judged. This ensures that when you read the journal, you gain proven, pragmatic insight and advice.
