It is no secret that the many accomplishments of African Americans in the field of Psychology have not been spotlighted as it should. The term "Multicultural Counseling '' has recently immersed in the counseling field to help address issues of the varying differences of different groups in therapy, as it relates to the client's age, race, ethnicity, social economic status, disability, sexual orientation, indigenous heritage, national origin and gender. The term "Black Psychology" has been coined before multicultural counseling and directly pertains to the Black experience living in America, as this key concept has been absent from studies. Every treatment model has been based on the worldview on the dominant white culture.
Blackness Interrupted: Black Psychology Matters focuses on highlighting noteworthy Psychologists and Psychiatrists, who have contributed to the field immensely by breaking great barriers at the time. Additionally, topics such as how to choose a mental health provider, the history of assessments as it relates to African Americans and the lack of acknowledgement within educational institutions amongst other notions are heavily discussed.
