Synopsis

Written from an afrocentric point of view, Collins's volume investigates sources of stress in the home and workplace. This book offers methods of stress reduction from a popular walking program to biofeedback, meditation, massage, yoga, and breathing exercises. Also highlighted are foods that contribute to stress and herbs that may help eliminate it.

Excerpt

It is expected that nearly half of the entire U.S. population will be composed of ethnic and racial minorities by the year 2050. With this growing diversity, clinicians, researchers and, indeed, all Americans need to understand that the Eurocentric views particular to Caucasians may or may not be relevant or adequate to address mental health issues in racial and ethnic minorities. This series addresses those issues, aiming to better understand how these factors affect mental health, and what needs to be done, or done differently, to heal disorders that may arise.
