Understanding the African-American Experience: An Interdisciplinary, Multimedia Approach.
Bauman, Stephanie SanMiguel; Bauman, Robert A.
Psychological and historical perspectives on what W.E.B. Du Bois described as "double-consciousness" or "twoness" offer distinct yet complementary viewpoints of the African American experience. A counseling psychologist and an American historian examined the issue of African American identity using an interdisciplinary teaching approach. The incorporation of print and audiovisual media helps reveal the African American experience of oppression, along with the development of identity and the demonstration of resilience. Knowledge of African American history and familiarity with psychological models of cultural identity development are prerequisite to increased therapist cultural sensitivity and multicultural counseling skills.
