Human Sexuality: Self, Society, and Culture is a fully integrated learning system which encourages students to think critically and supports students through their journey towards greater self-awareness. It is accompanied by Learnsmart, the groundbreaking online adaptive learning diagnostic tool that provides an individualized learning environment to help students identify what they know, and more importantly, what they don't know--helping them become active participants as they learn to appreciate all aspects of human sexuality. With its positive, thought-provoking appraisal of the human sexual experience, Human Sexuality: Self, Society, and Culture emphasizes the need to think critically about the contexts that shape sexuality--as well as highlights the role of sexuality in our community, culture, and society. Gil Herdt and Nicole Polen create an environment where students can feel free to explore their self-awareness while inspiring a lifelong appreciation for their sexual well-being. Human Sexuality: Self, Society, and Culture gives students the tools they need to embrace the entire human sexual experience with an emphasis on current and engaging research and strong coverage of diversity.
