Abstract

There is a lack of conceptual, theoretical, and methodological frameworks that appropriately position families and communities of color within a historical, political, and socioeconomic context that accounts for their experiences. This has led to gross disparities in mental health services. The neglect of families of color - whether or not it is overt - has contributed to the perpetuation of misunderstandings, oppressive attitudes, and, ultimately, poorly designed programs of intervention and psychotherapy. Historically, race, culture, and ethnicity have not been seriously addressed in clinical and scientific literature.
