Understanding Human Development is a text book that focuses on the impact that communication has on others.
Its overview of well-known and frequently utilised skills of interpersonal communication and interviewing draws upon research and practice literature in relation to 'micro-skills', to understand the critical decisions or choices which are made by using these skills.
This insightful unibook takes a multidimensional approach to understanding the complexities of personal experience.
It applies theoretical knowledge of human beings and the social environment of adversity, oppression, coping and adaptation to practice knowledge and self-awareness; serving as one of the most comprehensive unibooks students will find on the human condition.
This textbook also encourages students to think critically and to reflect on practice.
Case scenario contributions made by experienced practitioners are mentioned throughout the book, to ensure that examples are grounded firmly in everyday practice realities and to reinforce the emphasis on working creatively, critically and consciously with other people.
