Systemic Racism, White Supremacy, and the Impact on Couple Relationships

We at the Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy assert that issues of equality, racism, underrepresented populations, and bias are matters of significant priority in everyday life. The importance of these issues renders them a priority in clinical practice, supervision, research, and training. Addressing systemic racism and White supremacy in a special issue is one way to introduce these concepts into our clinical consciousness. The purpose of this special issue is to recruit high-quality papers from leading scholars exploring the impact of systemic racism and/or White supremacy on couple relationships and the therapy process, as well as on therapists. Manuscripts can be of a wide variety, and can include:

  • Original research
  • Theoretical papers
  • Intervention and clinical practice papers
  • Editorials and commentaries

The deadline for completed manuscripts to be uploaded onto our submission site is June 1, 2021. While we are not requiring abstracts to be submitted in advance, questions about the appropriateness of a particular article can be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Katherine M. Hertlein, at [email protected].
