With high rates of divorce and remarriage in the United States, the stepfamily is becoming increasingly prevalent in American society. Yet human service professionals faced with helping stepfamilies have received little professional training on solving the unique problems of stepfamilies in therapy.

Stepfamilies in Therapy fills the gap by offering the detailed insights therapists need to understand stepfamilies and to help them build a healthy and stable family life. This book provides comprehensive information and guidance for addressing the special needs and problems of stepfamilies in therapy.

It examines the complex issues facing stepfamilies including grief over divorce, child custody and visitation disputes, unrealistic expectations of family life, and confusing relationships with extended family - and offers approaches for effective assessment and treatment. The authors explain, for instance, how to use special guidelines to help stepparents set necessary boundaries on relationships with ex-spouses - and how parenting agreements can empower marital couples to establish the rules about household chores, television use, and privacy needed to alleviate territorial battles at home.

Numerous case examples show how, by helping stepfamilies work through unresolved emotional issues, therapists can enable them to build caring relationships and achieve stability.
