Interracial couples and multiracial families are burgeoning populations in our society and clinical practices. Three factors to assess when interracial couples present for services are the partners’ levels of racial awareness and sensitivity, how they negotiate or work through difference (fighting fair vs. conflict avoidance vs. destructive conflict), and their narrative about race. This chapter describes this niche area of practice and how the author developed an interest in it. The author covers the joys and challenges and business aspects of this area of practice and offers guidance on developing such a niche practice. Resources are given to assist in this process.
