Intermarriage and Mixed Parenting, Promoting Mental Health and Wellbeing

Crossover Love

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The world is currently witnessing a significant growth in marriages across ethnic borders, but relatively little is known of how discourses of 'normal' families, ethnicity, race, migration, globalisation affect couples and children involved in these mixed marriages.

This book illuminates the reality of mixed marriage through intimate stories drawn from the lives of visibly different couples. The testimonies describe rich possibilities and bitter disappointments, offering lessons for services promoting mental health and wellbeing, and for improving psychosocial intervention. The book will be of interest to academics in anthropology, sociology, psychology and social work, as well as practitioners including psychologists, counsellors, school advisors, and health workers.
