Overview

Literature suggests that over 60% of American stepfamilies divorce, psychologically or legally. This translates into millions of anguished, traumatized adults and kids, who form an invisible subculture on our continent. There seem to be five combined reasons for this tragic, unremarked epidemic: _ co-parents' psychological wounds from low-nurturance childhoods, _ blocked grief, _ unawareness of key stepfamily realities and relationship skills, _ courtship neediness and idealism, and _ little qualified community and media help.

This is a guidebook for divorced parents, stepfamily co-parents, and their supporters. It builds on foundation ideas described in earlier volumes to overcome seven core barriers to the co-parenting teamwork their minor kids desperately need. This modular book will be most helpful to readers who have studied the five prior volumes in this series.
