The Black Family: Strengths, Self-Help, and Positive Change

Synopsis

With eleven selections designed to reinforce the goal of empowering clients to take charge of their lives, this edited volume serves a two-fold purpose. It extends the small but growing body of strength-oriented literature to include African-American families and it serves as a natural extension of current texts on African-American families to provide social workers and the education community with a broader framework for understanding the needs of Black families. Offering both a research orientation and a practice perspective, this book should appeal to social work educators and practitioners involved in family services, health and mental health settings, and child and public welfare.
