Remarried couples are often poorly served by therapists who treat them without enough appreciation for the unique complexity and multiple loyalties of stepfamily life.  This workshop will combine clinical assessment and treatment issues with a special focus on values issues, such as commitment and fairness that often dominate conflict in stepfamilies.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List the unique challenges of marriage in a stepfamily.
  2. Describe special treatment strategies for remarried couples in stepfamilies.
