Built around a framework that examines African American couples issues as well as the specific contextual factors that can negatively impact their relationships, it:
Addresses threats to love and intimacy for Black couples
Provides culturally relevant, strengths-based approaches and assessment practices
Includes interesting case studies at the conclusion of each chapter that illustrate important concepts.
