African American women are the least likely demographic to ever marry (Banks, 2011; Clarke, 2011). In response, relationship self-help books targeting this population are on the rise. A qualitative content analysis was conducted on three best-selling self-help books directed to single heterosexual African American women. This workshop will educate counseling professionals about the controlling images found within the sampled self-help books as well as how their clients might be impacted by the content.
