Abstract

This article attempts to bridge the gap between micro and macro levels of practice by applying individual theories of human behavior to a societal problem. The authors re-examine anti-black racism and its consequences in light of current psychoanalytic concepts within the self psychology and object relations frameworks. It is suggested that these points of view can be used to provide new understandings of such phenomena as racial violence, and racial myths and stereotypes. © 1996 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
