about this item

Writers, human relations specialists, and other specialists from the US aim to prepare students in helping professions to work for equal opportunities for minority groups and women, particularly to learn the history and early theories of human relations programs and interventions; develop skills related to leadership, communication, and group and organizational behaviors and analyses of behavioral science data; and deal with situations of conflict and tension using interpersonal, intergroup, and organization strategies. The 16-chapter text emphasizes historical and current human relations problems and strategies for change, an interdisciplinary approach, and social justice and equity. It covers the academic foundations of human relations studies in business management, social and behavioral sciences, education, and the humanities, as well as the attitudes and beliefs of professional helpers and organizational leaders, community change strategies, and prototype human relations programs, then selected social justice issues, such as racism, sexism, gender, poverty, homophobia, xenophobia, immigration, disability, ageism, and classism.
