Overview
In a field dominated by deficiency and deviance models for minority families, Resiliency in African American Families breaks that mold by focusing on the strengths and resources of minority families. Taking an in-depth look at family resources and coping strategies of African Americans, this book pays particular attention to the role that culture and ethnicity play in minority families` development. Divided into two major sections, the book first examines the context in which the family unit lives and the effects of the community and cultural resources on the family`s resilient adaptation to stressful life events, then shifts its focus to issues of resiliency within the context of family relationships. Compiled by a distinguished group of contributors, this edited volume explores the following topics: - Extended family resources - Racial socialization strategies - Health care - Religious supports - Marital relations - Parent-child relations - Adolescent pregnancy Social workers, counselors, and scholars in family studies, African American studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, and sociology will find this unique approach to African American families a valuable resource.
