Culturally Congruent Approaches

This part addresses the question of what can be done to improve mental health and functional outcomes for African Americans with disabilities and chronic illnesses. Two chapters in this section are devoted to addressing this issue. One chapter focuses on how to enhance external/ environmental resources (social support), and one focuses on how to enhance intrapersonal resources (i.e., self-efficacy beliefs and feelings of control).

The strategies and interventions reviewed in these chapters are based on the work of the author and her colleagues. Guidelines for implementing a social support intervention (chapter 7) and guidelines for implementing a self-efficacy intervention (chapter 8) are provided. Chapter 9 provides a conclusion to the book and discusses areas where future work is needed.
