Beschreibung des Verlags

Abstract Successful psychotherapy with African Americans requires modifying traditional approaches. The high visibility of skin color is a trigger for racism, which is psychologically embedded and is a socially sanctioned phenomenon in this country. This frequently poses a barrier of distrust between a White therapist and Black patient. Stereotyping may lead to misdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment approaches, and poor outcome. In an era of managed insurance care, health providers need to be specially trained to be culturally competent and ethnically sensitive to the cultural values of all ethnic groups. African Americans have frequently been given pathological diagnoses because of culturally incompetent therapists. Culture-adaptive therapy addresses many of these issues.
