Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This practical review of therapy work with step-families begins with the premise that the step-family must be initially viewed as different from a traditional nuclear family, not inferior. The therapist co- authors review particular therapeutic techniques, including: integration, dealing with difference and unrealistic beliefs, life- cycle discrepancies, power issues, loyalty conflicts, interventions, and helping children to adjust to loss and change.
