Front Cover
Wiley, 2000 - Psychology - 313 pages
Therapy cannot be effective unless the first session is a success. In this much-needed new book, Janis Sanchez-Hucles gives clinicians-no matter what their race or ethnic background-a key resource for learning the special information, skills, and techniques they need to provide culturally competent care to African American clients . . . in a single session.

Based on the author's more than twenty years experience working with African American clients and filled with illustrative clinical examples, The First Session with African Americans offers an in-depth understanding of the specific techniques that are most effective for establishing rapport, forming alliances, and intervening in a crisis. The book's proven strategies are custom-made for treating the issues most common to African American clients.
