  1. Psychological/cultural issues in medicine and psychiatry : treating African Americans.

    Article - En anglais

    In general, we are raised in a specific cultural environment, and consequently, we have a common sense of identity, shared standards, and religion.

    The effects of this commonality carries over into health-care situations, including health maintenance and disease prevention.

    This article provides an overview of how psychosocial/cultural issues have been used with insensitivity to race, culture, and the value orientations of African Americans.

    It is concluded that the training of all health-care practitioners should include psychosocial/cultural aspects of illnesses.
