principles to guide treatment of african american women
Principles to Guide Treatment of African American Women
  • Longshore and colleagues (1998) suggested six core principles to guide the treatment of African American Women. These principles are as follows:
  • 1. Substance abuse dependence is conceived as an individual affliction and as a community disorder rooted in cultural and power disparities between African Americans and dominant white institutions.
  • 2. The route of recovery is understood as a process that involves the acquisition of power in the forms of knowledge, spiritual insight, and community health.
  • 3. Discussion of clients’ drug use is framed in a context that recognizes the totality of life experiences faced by the client as an African American in an unfriendly social/political environment.
  • 4. An emphasis is placed on the importance of changing one’s environment not only for the good of the individual client but also for the greater good of the community.
  • 5. A focus is placed on drug use alternatives that underscore personal rituals, cultural traditions, and spiritual well being.
  • 6.Equality is sought in the therapeutic relationship between counselor and client; there is a de-emphasize on counselors being socially distant and nondisclosing.

trends of african american behavioral patterns
Trends of African American Behavioral Patterns

1. African-American Language – symbolic, highly affective, and given additional flexibility by considerable amount of highly meaningful body language.

2. Oral Patterns – importance of the oral or spoken communication. Oral communication remains the predominant means of information transmission within the African American community.

3. People orientation – Experiences are significant to the degree that they relate to people in some direct way.

4. Interaction vs. Reaction – interactional pattern of call-and-response characterized by a litany of sentences from the speaker and responses from the listeners. Dialogue is interactional.

5. African Thought – thinking and problem-solving which strongly relies on internal cues “hunches” “vibes” and reactions as a means of acquiring information and knowledge rather than external cues.

6. Spontaneity – the facility for easy, rapid adaptation to different situations. The capacity to respond quickly and appropriately to environmental changes.
