First in the family: Transforming confusion into resilience
by Frazier, LaDana L., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 37; 1481586
Abstract (Summary)

This narrative will explore my experience as an African American Women, whose life and experience growing up in a family with a single mother communicates how growing up as a child led to future psychological problems. Growing up as a teenager was extremely hard for me due to experiencing feelings of confusion, and corruption I reviewed literature on struggles of African American Women, Family Resilience in the African American Community, Bonding of mothers and daughters and African American single mothers. Literature reviews were used as a template to better understand, communicate and express this narrative project. The development of my narrative will be discussed as well as my personal and professional growth as a student of social work.
