This is a ground breaking and long overdue book that proposes a variety if innovative and practical strategies to address relevant issues for Africa American men in micro-practice approaches ( individual, couple, family and group treatment) as well as macro-practice approaches ( policy formulation, programme development , and community practice). This well documented book is informed by the author's years of qualitative research and their considerable years of clinical experience with African American men.
