Abstract:

Dr. Don Elligan, a clinical psychologist working in Chicago and Boston, was looking for a way to connect to the angry young black men in his office. Abusing drugs and alcohol and making poor choices about their future, they desperately needed help in changing their lives. But when Dr. Elligan spoke to them in his language, they tuned him out. He had to learn to understand and communicate in theirs -- the language of hip-hop, or rap. To do that, he developed his widely praised program.

Called Rap Therapy. Now, he makes Rap Therapy accessible to all concerned adults -- parents, guardians, teachers or counselors. In a clearly written, straightforward guide, Dr. Elligan explains how to reach out to today's young people by developing an understanding of their culture: why the pants have to be bigger, the lyrics raunchier, and the music raw and throbbing like their troubled world. He shows how rap artists such as Salt-n-Pepa, Outkast, Dr. Dre, and LL Cool J comment on sex,

Drugs, politics, society, and family, influencing urban kids in a variety of ways, from clothing to language. And he explains why the movement and the music so appeal to teenagers who use the slang and rhyming lyrics to express their emotions, challenges, and dreams, as well as to shock and exclude adults. Along with compelling real-life stories from his practice, Dr. Elligan provides selected pro-social rap songs to use in Rap Therapy, and specific curricula for various issues from anger.

Management in young men to improving self-esteem in young women. A book of hope and real help, Rap Therapy is an essential tool for using the sound that has captured troubled kids' imaginations to make a difference in their lives. Book jacket.
