Couples therapists are taught how to do couples therapy; however, clinicians often find themselves at a loss when working with couples that aren't members of ethinic and cultural majorities. Most therapeutic models don't adequately address cultural issues, or they're treated as an afterthought to the overall approach. Clinicians' tasks are made even more difficult by a widespread lack of understanding of the considerable strengths and challenges that African American couples bring to therapy. However, clinicians who are sensitive to and utilize the strengths these couples bring to counseling can provide their clients with supportive, informed, and culturally sensitive approaches to counseling. Love, Intimacy, and the African American Coupleputs clinicians on the path to developing this sensitivity. Readers will come away from this book with a deepened understanding and specific strategies that they can use in their practices, regardless of the clinician's own race or level of experience.
