Pastoral care of interracially married couples: Korean-American context

Abstract
This project proposes to instruct pastoral counselors in mediation techniques that can lead to reconciliation in troubled marriages of Korean wives and American husbands. Due to cultural and linguistic barriers, variances in child-rearing philosophies, and the negative Han (wounded feelings) of a Korean wife, such marriages face greater challenges than monocultural marriages. The project suggests that Five-Angle Pastoral Counseling--involving an American husband, a Korean wife, an American pastor, a Korean pastor, and God--can facilitate happy marriages of persons from these races and cultures.
