The Handbook of African American Psychology provides a comprehensive guide to current developments in African American psychology. It presents theoretical, empirical, and practical issues that are foundational to African American psychology. It synthesizes the debates in the field and research designed to understand the psychological, cognitive, and behavioral development of African Americans.

The breadth and depth of the coverage in this handbook offers both foundational material and current developments. Although similar topics will be covered in this text that are included in other works, this will be the only work in which experts in the field write on contemporary debates related to these topics. Moreover, the proposed text incorporates other issues that are typically not covered in related books. The contributing authors also identify gaps in the literature and point to future directions in research, training, and practice.

Key Features:

  • Contains the writings of renowned editors and contributors: The most well-respected and accomplished editors and authors in the area of African American psychology, and psychology in general, have come together to lend their expert analysis of issues and research in this field.
  • Designed for course use: With a consistent format from chapter to chapter and sections on historical development, cutting-edge theories, assessment, intervention, methodology, and development issues, instructors will find this handbook appropriate for use with upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level classes
  • Offers unique coverage: The authors discuss issues not typically found in other books on African American psychology, such as ethics, certification, the gifted and talented, Hip-Hop and youth culture, common misconceptions about African Americans, and within-group differences related to gender, class, age, and sexual orientation.

About the Author:

Shawn O. Utsey, new to the author team on this edition, is the Chair of the department of African American Studies, director of the Institute for African American Mental Health Research and Training, an editor of the Journal of Black Psychology, and an associate professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and is the Editor of the Journal of Black Psychology.

Review:

"The book provides an excellent overview and introduction to significant contemporary research on the psychological issues encountered by the African American community. The important questions raised and the quality of the more traditional psychological research serve as a much-needed antidote to the assumptions of psychology's dominant paradigm."-- (04/17/2009)
