In his new book entitled, The Black Manual – Less Drama, More Love: A Single Woman’s Guide to Choosing Mr. Right, Dr. Shane Perrault, PhD, Marital Psychologist, makes some very interesting claims about Black women. He says, “Single, divorced or widowed, Black women are three times more likely never to marry, twice as likely to divorce, and are significantly more likely to earn the lion’s share of the family’s household income.”
But while Steve Harvey and Hill Harper started The Conversation about dating and marriage in the Black community, Dr. Shane’s book provides insider tips, skill building exercises, and unique psychological theories designed to help you lose Mr. Wrong and choose Mr. Right.
Founder of African American Marriage Counseling, Dr. Shane has provided relationship and marital therapy for 15-25 couples a week since 2004.
As an author, psychologist, and speaker, he achieves the impossible: using laugh-out-loud humor, piercing insights, and proven methods.
Dr. Shane breaks down complex male/female dynamics, communication and personality challenges — delivering essential relationship advice in a way that will empower your audience to get it (and enjoy the ride). He will help begin to take crucial steps toward having more fulfilling and healthier relationships.
Dr. Shane received his PhD from Ohio State University, and has appeared in the Washington Times and Post, Ebony and Essence, XM Radio, TV One and BET.
