The reason why studying human behavior and the social environment (HBSE) is relevant for a social worker is because one can understand how the person-environment influences their behavior, speech and the way they respond to their environment. According to Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman (2016), social workers need to have a foundation of information and understanding about human behavior so that they can help clients identify and select alternatives.
HBSE is unique from other social and behavioral sciences because it looks at the person-environment and sees how it affect the person. It also it looks at the individual because everyone can react differently to the same environment. Also, the analysis of the environment help understand the human behavior and the interactions between individuals and various systems in the environment to( Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman,2016).

A population-at-risk is any group of people who share some identifiable characteristic that places them at greater risk of social and economic deprivation and oppression than the general mainstream of society. Can you give me an example of a population like this that you have encountered or that you may feel is at risk and how that impacts human behavior ?
