Counseling Multiracial Families



July 1999 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Multiracial families (families in which one member of the family has a different racial heritage than the other member(s) of the family) comprise a rapidly growing U.S. population. Counseling Multiracial Families addresses this population that has been neglected in the counseling literature. In the first chapter, readers are given a comprehensive history of racial mixing in the United States special needs and issues of multiracial families as well as special strengths of multiracial families are addressed. Challenges of interracially married couples are explored as are the social and cultural issues related to parenting and child rearing of multiracial children in today's society. The results of biracial identity development research are translated into counseling practice with the children, adolescents, and adults in multiracial families.
