What are the merits of multiple perspectives when examining human behavior? Why is it important? Provide examples of the impact of using multiple perspectives when providing services to a family or individual.
Sasha. I answered this for you and then asked you to comment on my response.
Please do not continue posting the same question over and over without giving us some indication of YOUR ideas.
Well, I put this on here because I needed help because I do not know where I need to be at and I don't believe the answer you gave me was correct so that is why I reposted it. Excuse me for this being my first time to use this kind of website.
Why don't you think my answer was correct? Please explain and I'll rethink my answer and try to help you.
Here was my original answer:
Different professionals, medical doctors, psychologists, social workers, clergy, teachers, etc., will see behavior from different perspectives. Between all of them, they should come up with a fairly accurate assessment of a person's behavior.
In the book, Dimensions of the Human Behavior, it is talking about the merits of multiple behavior. Your answer did not seem to fit into what the book was talking about. I have to go to bed now, I have to be up at 4:00 in the morning. I will be looking for your response when I get to work. Thank you for your help.
The original answer is correct. Multiple perspectives includes behavioral, psychoanalytic, cognitive, and sociocultural. Each viewpoint adds to the total picture of an individual and her behavior, and just looking at one perspective, the picture is incomplete.
Is it possible that the text is teaching about the cyclical and environmental behaviors unique to each individual.
For instance, young children have different behaviors than older children and so on. People usually act differently in different environments, i.e., football games, school, church, parties with their friends.
