If clinicians are to be effective in helping the more than 45 million African Americans in the United States, they must be versed in the history, cultural context, and racial microagressions that both challenge and make this population resilient.
Written in a conversational style that will appeal to clinicians and academics, this book provides a historical treatment of the cultural context of African Americans, as well as clinical treatment guidelines and practice-based, evidentiary approaches.
It is based in attachment theory and emotionally focused therapy, and is contributed to by well-known and respected figures in the field of marriage and family therapy.
