Clinical Issues in Intermarriage: A Family Systems Approach; Part II: Technical Issues in the Clinical Treatment of Intermarriage

By Mark I. Sirkin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

Family-dystonic intermarriage creates significant family distress for which counseling is sought. This article describes the common features of those families, their presenting problems, and the clinical goals of intervention. Work with these families involves dealing with subsystems: the parents, the individuals contemplating intermarriage, and the couple. Clinicians must engage these families first as a consultant and then with a combination of approaches, including psychoeducation.
