Mixed Blessings: A Guide to Multicultural and Multiethnic Relationships was co-written by Rhoda Berlin and Harriet Cannon, marriage and family therapists who specialized in multicultural relationships. The book explores the intercultural experience and gives practical guidance on what this can mean and how it can impact people’s lives and relationships in subtle and often unnoticed ways.
Mixed Blessings goes beyond exploring racial and ethnic differences to include the effects of migration, appearance, social class, spiritual/religious and cultural practices on modern individual, couple and family dynamics.

Comments from Kirkus Reviews:
"Is love really all you need? This book mines the complexity of romantic relationships that are a union of cultures as well as individuals, offering guidance and applied examples.
The material is enlightening, effectively outlining how varied cultural perspectives affect worldviews. The authors argue that many of us aren’t aware of how our cultural responses may differ from those of our loved ones, inspiring aha moments from readers who may not even think of their primary relationship as a multicultural one. The writing is intelligent but not academic, ensuring that the book will be as accessible to clients as therapists, and some of the narratives are riveting.
Required reading for anyone who counsels or is part of a multicultural relationship."
