This research analyzes the impact of selected social policies on the self-concept of Black families and their children in comparison to their European counterparts. Economics and education have been selected because they are critical variables in the dynamic interaction responsible for the foundation of adequate family functioning and child development. This precise analysis should suggest guidelines for working with Black families and children and for enhancing their self-concept and mental health through impacting existing social policy, analysis, and practice.
