Assertive Black... Puzzled White: A Black Perspective on Assertive Behavior.
Cheek, Donald K.
This book on assertiveness from a black viewpoint proceeds from the assumption that there are a large number of black people who could be helped to improve their social and personal functioning by a therapeutic approach based on the psychological totality of the black experience in American society. Included are discussions of: (1) preparing a black person for assertive living; (2) what reactions from whites the assertive black can expect and how these reactions should be met; (3) what happens in a step-by-step black assertiveness program; (4) which techniques are best for assisting blacks in developing assertive behavior and which won't work; and (5) how a black assertive behavior training program should be developed.
