Sexuality and Our Diversity: Integrating Culture with the BiopsychosocialVersion 2.0 By: Marcus Tye
- Contemporary focus on interactions of biological, individual psychological, social, and cultural factors that underpin human sexuality and sexual expression.
- Written for learners with varying levels of preparation and interest in the subject.
- Global/comparative coverage, such as drawing parallels between gender roles, economic circumstances, and health in many countries, including the U.S.
- Flexible fifteen-chapter, modular organization facilitates adding, removing, or rearranging large portions of material or even a sentence or word to align easily with semester, quarter, or accelerated courses and various teaching approaches.
- Infuses LBGTQ+ cultural variations, inclusion, and equity throughout the main narrative, not as marginalized feature boxes or in a single “diversity” chapter.
- Each chapter contains learning objectives, interim summaries called “Key Takeaways,” key terms, exercises/discussion questions, and recommended resources. Engaging, embedded video links to free or open sites facilitate flipped classroom models and online course discussions.
Sexuality and Our Diversity: Integrating Culture with the Biopsychosocial, v. 2.0 is suitable for human sexuality courses taught primarily in psychology departments. May also be appropriate for human sexuality courses taught in human development, family studies, nursing/allied health, personal health, and sociology departments. Appropriate for courses taught at the undergraduate level at two- and four-year colleges and universities and at the graduate level.
Sexuality and Our Diversity: Integrating Culture with the Biopsychosocial, v. 2.0 takes an integrated approach to exploring the complex dimensions of biology, culture, psychology, sociology, history, and philosophy that explain human sexual diversity. The author contextualizes specific topics, such as sexually transmitted infections, in a broader picture of comprehensive sex education and public policy, access to healthcare, and economic equality. Topics build from basic to advanced to support less well-prepared students while keeping those with prior coursework fully engaged.
- Over 1,000 discrete revisions, including new content, updated research, new or refreshed links, and revised exercises.
- Key revisions to coverage of public policy and law, genetics, and neuroscience.
- New coverage of affirmative consent and the #MeToo movement.
- Updated references to trans* persons reflect preferences of the trans* and trans* affirmative communities.
