One of the great joys about modern society is that people from a wide range of different cultures can form very intense relationships. Sometimes, the differences between the expectations of the partners can lead to conflict, and this is where it is important to find a therapist who can offer you counseling suitable to your particular situation. If you are looking for someone who is able to provide a culturally sensitive therapy, rather than simply being middle class and pale, then you should seek the help of the experienced Grazel Garcia, who can use her knowledge to offer you a new way of looking at your relationship.
The Importance Of Culture
We are such a mixed collection of people is that it can be hard to realize how important culture can be to particular people. Whether it is simply holding a special day in high regard when it comes to religious associations, or if you are seeking to better understand a partner that you know was raised in a completely different culture to your own, you will need advice from someone who is more knowledgeable about cultural awareness, and can offer you insight into your relationship problems by taking account of your different backgrounds and traditions. Through a better understanding of culture and the importance of tradition, a specialist therapist can work with you to resolve your relationship and make it better, richer and more enjoyable for both parties.
The Importance Of The Individual
When you come to therapy, your practitioner will know that you are arriving as a couple, with coffee in your relationship which may be a result of your cultural differences. However, the main focus of the conversation will be on the individuals, working together to try to resolve the problems that have arisen within the relationship that have been blamed on cultural differences. If we are dealing with a couple where one of the parties is a person of color, it can be important to address the issues of racism, and that person’s experience of social injustice as a background to the conflict within the relationship. Partners may be sympathetic but may not realize the full extent of the injustice and the feelings that this causes until it is pointed out in a therapeutic setting. This is why it is essential for you to experience this conversation with a therapist who has knowledge of how to handle discussing these problems.
