Interracial/Intercultural Couples and the Church

This presentation will draw upon current research regarding the dynamics and specific challenges interracial couples can face and incorporate interventions which can be utilized during treatment. Areas of practical application include traditional therapy settings as well as marriage preparation programs and the pastoral formation of clergy/religious.
