Counseling African American Men, Volume 3: A Complete Course of Therapy

African American men do not typically seek counseling and, when they do, they may not feel safe to explore feelings of vulnerability related to race and racism. By sensitively exploring this dynamic, you will learn to adapt your own therapeutic approach to enhance clinical outcome. Without an appreciation for the relational foundation that is key to therapeutic success with this population, you may remain stuck at a superficial level of therapeutic engagement. And without viewing the Black client’s conflicts through the larger lens of family, culture, and the life cycle, clinicians may miss valuable therapeutic opportunities to help their clients. This rare glimpse into Darrick Tovar-Murray’s in-depth work with one client’s therapeutic journey over several months will deepen your appreciation for the healing power of empathy and the skillful use of technique. By watching Tovar-Murray masterfully meld narrative and client-centered techniques, you will learn how to help Black men heal from the intergenerational scars and narratives that continue to oppress them. As your appreciation for cultural notions like “the absent Black father” builds and your understanding of the systemic influence that race and racism has on individual treatment deepens, you will learn how to help your African American clients use history, culture, and community as powerful catalysts for growth and healing. This video will deepen your appreciation for the role that race plays both inside and outside of the therapeutic space, so that you can better connect with your African American clients and make more targeted and meaningful interventions.
