Attitudes towards family and marital counseling among israeli arab women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This is an empirical study of attitudes towards family and marital counseling among Israeli Arab women living in the multiethnic community of Jalfa-Tel Aviv. Using vignettes in a 3 x 3 factorial design, the study found that the women expressed most readiness to seek professional help for problems with their children and least readiness to seek help for problems with their spouses. Findings also showed that the ethnic identity-Jewish or Arab-of the service provider did not affect their attitudes. The paper suggests a variety of reasons for the findings.
