Therapy with African American Men.
Franklin, Anderson J.
Families in Society, v73 n6 p350-55 Jun 1992
Discusses cultural, socialization, gender-related, and psychohistorical reasons for the resistance to, and low participation in, therapy for African-American males. Development of a trusting relationship is a critical first step in the treatment of African-American men. The therapist must acknowledge and respect the skepticism the client initially presents.
