"Together, the two books by van Wormer and van Wormer, Besthorn and Keefe on Human Behavior and the Social Environment give a comprehensive overview of human behavior in the wider social context. They provide increased awareness of the connections between individual behavior, circumstances, cultural and global influences as well as ethical considerations that must form a part of personal and professional decision-making. Although these books sit well together, each one can also stand competently alone."--International Social Work
