Abstract

This study explored the use of culture-based empowerment curricula in empowering a group of African-American male special education students to succeed. The Generalized Expectancy to Succeed Scale was used to measure the generalized expectancy to succeed among 8 severely emotionally disturbed adolescent males. The program outcomes assessed included increases and decreases in expectancy to succeed and that the culture-based curriculum did not have an impact on their expectancy to succeed. Social work implications related to empowering African-American males are addressed.
