    Designed specifically for graduate students in social work, African American Perspectives: Matters of Consideration for Social Work Practice helps readers investigate and explore issues faced by African American clients.

    Over the course of nine chapters complex topics are examined in depth. Topics include education, mental health, incarceration and the criminal justice system, economic oppression, religion and spirituality, families, and class. Each chapter features questions and responses from African Americans as they discuss these topics and how their own lives have been impacted by these things.

    African American Perspectives is designed for graduate level social work, sociology, and psychology courses. For those with limited knowledge of the subject matter the book provides both detail and scope. Those in practice with African American clients will benefit from the current information.

    John W. Miller Jr. holds a Ph.D. in social work from the University of Tennessee. He is an associate professor and chair of the Social Work Department at Benedict College. He has published in the Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment, Adult Development and Well-Being, Race, Gender, and Class, and The School Community Journal. Currently his research is focused on suicidal ideation among African American youth. In addition to teaching, Dr. Miller is a licensed Master Social Worker in the state of Arkansas.
