Overview

This volume presents unique, culturally relevant interventions that can teach coping skills to African American boys with a history of aggression. Stevenson provides the history and current events for readers to understand why these youths perceive violence as the only way to react. Interventions and preventative actions developed in the PLAAY project (Preventing Long-Term Anger and Aggression) are presented. These include teaching coping skills and anger management via athletics such as basketball and martial arts. Frustrations and strengths in those athletics illuminate the players' emotional lives, and serve as a basis for self-understanding and life skill development.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The author presents a history of culturally relevant black youth and behavior before delving into sports-related anger management interventions through the medium of basketball and martial arts—interventions in which the participants' emotional lives are exposed and employed as a basis for self-understanding and life-skill development. . . . Well referenced and insightful, this multidisciplinary volume will serve those interested in fostering community development and positive development of youth. Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals; general readers."
