About this item
The African American Urban Male’s Journey to Success: Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Race, Gender, and Social Class is an exploration of the interconnected nature of psychodynamics and social factors, especially in relation to experiences with success. Goedert uses a psychoanalytic lens to examine the roles of race, gender, and social class in the experiences of five professional African American men who transcended their origins in urban poverty. Through rich quotes and depictions, this book thematically explores the commonalities between each of their interpersonal and intrapsychic experiences, and provides implications for future research, policy, and practice. Recommended for scholars of psychology, sociology, social work, race studies, and gender studies.
