'This wonderful ground-breaking book charts new territory in the treatment of Black couples. It is one of the first books to explore therapy with heterosexual, gay, lesbian, and transgender Black couples in one volume. An inspirational text for both experienced and new therapists, it provides special strategies for addressing the impact of racism on Black relationships. This book is also an outstanding resource for all courses on diversity, and couple and family therapy.' Nancy Boyd-Franklin, Rutgers University, New Jersey, and author of Black Families in Therapy: Understanding the African American Experience
'This is a fascinating book that opens the door to the challenges and opportunities for treating Black couples. A must-read.' John Gottman, author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and Julie Schwartz Gottman, author of Ten Principles for Doing Effective Couples Therapy
'In this much needed book, a very knowledgeable group of authors speak cogently to the special factors involved in the relationships of Black couples, and offer wise guidance about therapy with Black couples. Black Couples Therapy approaches these subjects through a breadth of lenses, including the impact of racism, gender, sexuality, and sexual orientation. Further, it includes chapters about working with Black couples in the context of several of the most widely practiced couple therapies. This is an exemplary book through which every therapist or therapist in training can learn more about the Black couple experience and couple therapy. It should be in every mental health professional's library.' Jay Lebow, Northwestern University, Illinois
