Sexuality and Our Diversity: Integrating Culture with the Biopsychosocialboasts the following areas of content emphasis and organization:
Sexuality and Our Diversity features several pressing global health issues. It explains parallel relationships between gender roles, economic circumstances, and health in many countries, including the U.S., so as to make material relevant to students.
Marcus Tye took special care to avoid redundancy in readings, allowing for cultural and historical depth and a wider range of research from relevant disciplines.
The chapters in Sexuality and Our Diversity are organized using two or three "Parts,” providing breaking points for instructors. It also allows additional flexibility to remap readings to a new semester’s calendar. This is especially useful if an instructor teaches both accelerated and regular terms or is switching from a text with a different organization.
As human sexuality is an important component of many different curricula, this text does not assume that students have had introductory psychology or introductory biology. Each section begins with a foundation of core concepts and builds to content and topics appropriate for advanced students. Research is explained so that less prepared students can understand complex material.
This textbook is based on the belief that a full understanding of human sexuality requires integration of culture, psychology, and biology. It explores disparate disciplines while bridging contemporary issues without forgetting the importance of historical context.
