Earlier this morning, on The Bill Good Show, I was interviewed live, and fielded a few questions from callers, about inter-cultural romantic relationships:http://www.cknw.com/the-bill-good-show/. You may hear my segment of the show by scrolling down to and clicking:
I will be offering a weekend workshop, entitled "Multicultural Romance: Complexities and Therapeutic Interventions," to counsellors, counselling students, and those interested in multicultural romance and relationships on August 24 and 25, 2013 at Rhodes Wellness College, in Vancouver, BC.
Dear Faizal: I’m a Christian Caucasian male, happily married, for the most part, to a Hindu Indian woman. We’ve been in a cross-cultural relationship for five years now, and we reside in Toronto. My wife is a wonderful partner — she’s supportive, loving and has really tried hard to integrate into Canadian culture. Lately, however, she’s become irritable, emotionally distant and pensive. She wasn’t “present” when we celebrated Christmas with my parents (her family lives in Delhi). For Christmas I bought her jewelry, clothes and other trinkets, but she didn’t seem interested. Now that Valentine’s Day is almost here, I want to buy the woman I love something big to make her feel special. Any suggestions? — From Husband in love Read my response here: http://canadianimmigrant.ca/family/dealing-with-love-across-cultures.
