dc.description.abstract Spanking within the African American community is a complex issue that needs to be discussed within the community. Although literature has explored important factors to consider when examining parent use of corporal punishment on children, and research has proven that African Americans use other forms of discipline techniques before resorting to spanking, African American parents are not exempt from utilizing physical punishment to address disobedient behaviors. The historical component, cultural considerations, and the pros and cons to spanking children need to be addressed. This project is designed to encourage a conversation and begin a dialogue about corporal punishment. It is important for families to understand why spanking is used in the community. African American people should understand where spanking originated, why it was a necessity, and acknowledge the current effects of its use today. In the past, spanking may have been necessary, but this project is designed to discuss whether spanking's immediate result of obedience can take precedent over developmental challenges that may develop overtime. The projects psycho-education component, role-play activities, weekly discussions, and process group format are aimed to challenge the acceptance of spanking, and address the acceptance of the perpetuating cycle of violence on African American children.
