This seminar will focus on attending to cultural norms when considering a DSM-5 diagnosis for Black males. In this seminar we will explore:

  • Identifying the presentation of cultural factors and survival strategies (i.e., paranoia, mistrust, flat affect, lack of interest) for Black males
  • Differentiating between cultural norms versus mental health symptoms for Black males
  • Validating normalized patterns of behavior for Black males that are not diagnostic in nature
  • The ethics of over diagnosis of Black males to gain access to services
