Overview

Misdiagnosis of African American Clients: Racial and Ethnic Bias in Mental Health Treatment not only reviews the institutions of racism and sexism into American culture, but the book also reviews classic sociological studies from the 1950s to 2000 and researchers' own skepticism of results due to possible biases based on race, ethnic background, gender and social class differences. Taking the reader through compelling case compilations, Ms. Nickens shows how counseling experiences can be influenced by prejudicial beliefs or institutional policies from clinical, judicial and educational organizations. With a sense of compassion, she allows readers to understand the impact institutional racism has on our society and offers compelling suggestions on how both clinicians and consumers of behavioral health services can stop this process from occurring.
