about this item

This guide for students, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers unites contributors in psychology, sociology, counseling, pastoral theology, and marriage and family therapy. They provide background and guidelines for working with diverse couples and families of all stripes. A special feature of the book is its coverage of groups that usually don’t receive much attention because they are seen as too common, such as white families and Christian families. For example, Part 1, on racial and ethnic identities, includes a chapter devoted to white racial identity in therapy with couples and families. Part 2 examines gender and sexual orientation in family and the sexual minority couple. Part 3 covers religious and spiritual identities, and Part 4 covers diverse family forms, such as multiracial families, intercultural families, stepfamilies, surrogate families, and LGBT families. Part 5 discusses identity models and structural systems, and Part 6 deals with cross-cultural assessment and research. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
