9780813367972: The Black Family: Strengths, Self-Help, and Positive Change

With numerous selections designed to reinforce the goal of empowering clients to take charge of their lives, this revised and updated second edition of The Black Family 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.

Review:

"Each of the chapters is well written. They represent many black scholars and contain significant value in and of themselves.... A great resource for family practitioners and clinicians." -- Journal of Marriage & the Family

"The best of its kind. Offers a clear application of knowledge for practice and covers a critical number of practitioner/client concerns. Thank you for bringing this invaluable resource to the classroom." -- Bernadette Jeffrey Fletcher , University of Pittsburgh

"The perspective of this book creates a healthy lens through which to examine the Black family. It is a powerful articulation of multiple situations in which Black families use their emotional, interpersonal, and spiritual strengths to resiliently cope with problems and social injustices. It calls for providers to join with Black families in their journey to live fulfilling lives by connecting with their strengths, hopes, beliefs, and natural helping networks. The reader gains a deeper appreciation of the self-help strategies utilized by the Black family to cope with multiple social problems and social pathologies while maintaining a sense of hope, dignity, connectedness with the family, spiritual beliefs and a historical legacy." -- Roger J. Sherwood , Hunter College School of Social Work

"The strengths of the networks that flow within and beyond the family give focus to the essays collected in this volume." -- Journal of Social Work Education

"This is a highly readable book. Its uplifting and positive message will be appreciated along with the many case examples and strategies for change. Students and professionals who provide services to Black families will be challenged to think in new and positive ways about Black family life. Sadye Logan emphasizes the basic humanity of both family members and professionals. Her approach is to build nurturing environments and enhance communal and individual responsibility. I enjoyed this book and learned from it." -- Cynthia Bisman, Bryn Mawr College
