Participants will learn how to utilize cultural strengths such as the extended family network, kinship care, religion and spirituality, and survival skills in their work. Special attention will be paid to the therapist's use of self in engaging African American children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Healthy cultural suspicion of many African Americans in response to racism will be explored. The process of raising the issues of race and racism with clients will be discussed. The fears of African American families for their children, especially their sons, will be addressed. Techniques for assessing and treating drug and alcohol abuse in African American clients will be presented. Clinical case examples and videotaped material will be utilized throughout.
