Overview

Most traditional couple therapy models are based on the Eurocentric, middle-class value system and are not effective for today’s psychotherapists working in multicultural settings. Multicultural Couple Therapy is the first “hands-on” guide for integrating couple therapy with culture, race, ethnic identity, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and immigration experiences.

The editors and a culturally diverse group of contributors follow a common outline of topics across chapters, related to theory, research, practice, and training. They report on the application of major evidence-based models of couple therapy and demonstrate the integral role played by contextually based values involved in relationships, conflict, and resolution.
