A Strengths-Based Parenting Intervention with Low-Income African American Families
Sheely-Moore, Angela I.; Bratton, Sue C.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n3 p175-183 Feb 2010
With the propensity of African American children at higher risk for academic success due to their disproportionate rate of school discipline problems compared to their peers, school counselors are challenged to provide culturally and developmentally responsive services for this population. This article provides a brief rationale for the use of a family-oriented, strengths-based approach when working with African Americans and explores the effect of "child parent relationship training" on children's behavior and parent-child relationship stress. (Contains 2 tables.)
