Anatomy of a StepFamily: Why StepFamilies are Different from Nuclear Families
While 52% of Americans are in a stepfamily system, they continue to be treated by therapists using a nuclear family template. This 1-1/2 hour presentation will help therapists learn the fundamental differences between a stepfamily and a nuclear family, including their unique stages of development, and issues that affect each member in a stepfamily system.
