Examined the influence of systematic discussion of culturally salient content in family therapy on the engagement of African American adolescent males. Evaluation of videotaped psychotherapy sessions found that discussions of developmentally and culturally relevant content themes (anger/rage, alienation, respect, and journey to manhood) positively influenced therapist-adolescent relationships. Discussions of racial identity/socialization had no association with adolescent engagement. (SM)
