Jenkins, Adelbert H.


In this comprehensive, new work the author applies a unified psychological point of view to the African American situation. The discussion focuses on how the African American community has strived for competence in the face of societal hostility. This approach to the psychological situation of African Americans looks at people as proactive, potentially competent beings who are able to make a difference in the situations that confront them. From his opening introduction to the humanistic psychological view and his discussions of self-concept, cognition and school performance, and speech and language processes in children, to his discussions of assertion and identity development in young adults and the issues related to mental health among Blacks, Jenkins develops a one-of-its-kind look at the aspects of traditional psychology that can make a contribution to the understanding of the Black experience in America. A Longwood Professional Book Also available in casebound: ISBN: 0-205-16488-9 Title Code: H64884.Jenkins, Adelbert H. is the author of 'Psychology and African Americans A Humanistic Approach' with ISBN 9780205164899 and ISBN 0205164897.
