The goal of psychotherapy with interfaith couples is to help them work out their differences so that they can form a peaceful and lasting union. In counseling, these couples explore their family backgrounds and religious beliefs so they can develop a language in which to have these important discussions and to find what they share. Counseling focuses on how partners will work through the challenges of family life, knowing that they have come from very different religious backgrounds and traditions. Interfaith couples need to think about how to deal with extended family traditions, holidays, the calendar, and more. The author covers the joys and challenges of this niche area of practice, along with business aspects of practice and recommendations for developing such a practice.
