History of Marriage - Wise Counsel

Wise Counsel is a psychology podcast in which Dr. David van Nuys interviews a wide variety of researchers and practitionners in the world of psychology and pyschotherapy. The sponsor of the podcast is a website about mental health education and research. As such the podcast serves as high quality audio content on the web.

The latest edition consists of an interview with Kristin Celello about the history of Marriage. Celello is an exceptional guest on the program since she is a historian and not a psychologisty or psychiatrist. However, her research on marriage, divorce and the emergence of marriage counseling makes her befitting the podcast. Marriage counseling has been
the subject before (Marriage maintenance) and the historical perspective brings a refreshing perspective with new insights.

I recommend anybody who wants to hear Celello, also to listen to her appearance on another interview podcast: New Books in History. Celello's research shows how the definitions of marriage, success in marriage and proper marriage counseling have developed and consequently resulted in shifts within the phenomena of divorce, marriage advice in media and the profession of marriage counselor.
