A national push is on to get psychologists certified in methods targeted toward African-American patients.
Two Jacksonville therapists are among the 21 professionals setting the standards for African-centered psychology, which focuses on spirituality and understanding of patients' African roots.
Counselors Larry Richardson and Steward Washington sit on the panel. Washington is certified himself, and Richardson said he incorporates many of the principles into his practice.
Professionals can apply to be grandfathered into the certification through October, but a testing and selection process will begin next year.
