Black Psychology. Third Edition.
Jones, Reginald L., Ed.
This book is the third edition of a resource for advanced students and professionals in black psychology in the form of 41 papers organized under 5 subheadings. The "overview" section includes one classic article and offers a new, world view paper. A "perspectives" section treats Afrocentric, humanistic, historical, philosophical, and behaviorist approaches. A "deconstruction" section critiques and evaluates the literature and practice in areas of critical importance to African American personality and psychological testing. A "reconstruction" section introduces novel and sound alternative ideas, interpretations, and constructs for the cognitive and non-cognitive attributes of African Americans. An "applications of black perspectives" section applies the perspective of black psychologists to several areas: psychophysiology, organizational psychology, experimental psychology, educational psychology, developmental psychology, and social psychology. Also in this section are papers on psychologists and psychology in the community, racism, counseling and psychotherapy, and research. All papers include extensive references. Author and subject indexes are included. (JB)
