Crossing Cultures in Marriage: Implications for Counseling African American/African Couples
Durodoye, Beth A.; Coker, Angela D.
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v30 n1 p25-37 Mar 2008
A wealth of literature exists regarding intermarriage between White and ethnic minority couples. Noticeably lacking, however, is information considering within-group diversity amongst Black couples. This paper will focus on cultural dynamics that may operate with African American and African couples residing in the United States. Through an examination of within-group differences and similarities, counselors can be better prepared to assist such couples in addressing and negotiating possible cross-cultural challenges. A case study example will be considered with critical incidents discussed and essential cross-cultural counseling competencies will be addressed.
