9781493951864: African American Boys: Identity, Culture, and Development (Advancing Responsible Adolescent Development)

 This book discusses current research on identity formation, family and peer influences, risk and resilience factors, and concepts of masculinity and sexuality in African American boys. Sorting out genuine findings from popular misconceptions and misleading headlines, this concise and wide-ranging reference covers the crucial adolescent years, ages 11-16, acknowledging diversity of background and experience in the group, and differences and similarities with African American girls as well as with other boys. In addition, the authors review strengths-based school and community programs that harness evidence and insights to promote pro-social behavior.

Featured areas of coverage include: 

  • The protective role of ethnic identity and racial socialization.
  • Family management, cohesion, communication, and well-being.
  • Development and importance of peer relationships.
  • Health and well-being.
  • Theoretical perspectives on educational achievement.
  • Factors that contribute to delinquency and victimization.
  • What works: effective programs and practices.

African American Boys is an essential resource for a wide range of clinicians and practitioners – as well as researchers and graduate students – in school and clinical child psychology, prevention and public health, social work, mental health therapy and counseling, family therapy, and criminal justice.

“African American Boys is a valuable, essential, and indispensable tool in the pursuit of progress for and on behalf of African American boys and adolescents. ... book is informative and thought provoking. ...
