Black Psych & Mental Health

Spring 2019

Taught By: Sophia Williams

Section: A

CRN: 6793

Credits: 3

This course is an introduction to African-centered psychology and mental health. During this course, we will examine the history and theories of Black psychology, models of black identity development, notions of self, and personhood, mental health, and research on working with Black clients within the therapeutic context. Discussions of intersectionality and socio-political practices will be woven throughout the course as a method of dimensionalizing and contextualizing the Black psychological experience. Students will be encouraged to critically examine the contributions of Black scholars to the field of psychology and explore the unique mental health concerns experienced within the Black community.
