This book is bombarded with original ideas for doing psychotherapy with African Americans.

It presents several models for specific types of psychotherapy. It also examines internal dynamics, how to relate to the individual and family in psychotherapy, and takes a look at the future of African American families. The book suggests the Black family has unique qualities, based upon its pasts, making it necessary to utilize a different therapeutic approach.
