Interracial relationships can be a beautiful opportunity to learn from someone who comes from a different background and see’s life in a different perspective. However, these differences can also create greater room for challenges and disagreements. Intercultural couples often come into relationships with different expectations of what it means to be a partner, family involvement in the relationship, boundaries and priorities, which can lead to dissonance and destructive cycles in your relationship. In this group, you will learn how to navigate the common issues that come up in interracial relationships and have a safe space to explore your individual
feelings about your relationship with others who can relate to you.
Through the use of gold-standard approach to couples therapy, the Gottman Method, and with influences from evidenced-based couples treatment, Emotionally Focused Therapy and mindfulness, you will learn how to strengthen communication through the development of a healthier shared language wit your partner(s). This group will make space for conversations around racism, stereotyping, and values identification. It will equip partner(s) with the tools to reduce their reactive responses, enhance compassion, de-escalate conflict, and be more attuned to cultural & familiar differences.
