Multicultural Aspects of Human Behavior (3rd ed.)

A Guide to Understanding Human Cultural Development

Willie V. Bryan,

Multicultural Aspects of Human Behavior: A Guide to Understanding Human Cultural Development
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.
