    In a multi-racial society such as ours, unconscious myths and stereotypes are ubiquitous, are maintained by both minority and majority members, and impact not only upon social relationships, but upon the processes of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. There is no doubt that analysis or psychotherapy between blacks and whites can be effective, but the therapists involved in these treatments must be mindful of the resistances, catalytic effects of racial differences, and, in addition, must be aware of the fact that both black and white patients have incorporated the unconscious notions extant throughout the society.
