Counseling African American Families. The Family Psychology and Counseling Series.
Sanders, Jo-Ann Lipford, Ed.; Bradley, Carla, Ed.
A major challenge confronting the counseling profession is meeting the needs of African American families. This monograph presents a discussion of the issues involved in the clinical assessment and treatment of these families. It explores their distinct experiences as they navigate through a society often hostile towards them. Chapters include: (1) "African American Families in the Postmodern Era" (Mary Smith Arnold); (2) "The Peripheral African American Father: Is There a Black Man in the House?" (Sylvester Huston, Terry D. Lipford, and Jeffrey Smith); (3) "Parenting: A Community Responsibility" (Carla Bradley); (4) "Racial Socialization" (Jo-Ann Lipford Sanders); (5) "Africentric Rites of Passage: Nurturing the Next Generation" (Paul Hill, Jr.); (6) "The Black Church: Bridge over Troubled Water" (Rufus G. W. Sanders); and (7) "Implications" (Jo-Ann Lipford Sanders). (Contains 175 references.) (JDM)
