Additional Information:
"This is a timely book, as the number of stepfamilies is continuously growing in the 21st century. The use of a single stepfamily case study demonstrating seven family systems theories allows practitioners to weigh the merits and limitations of each of these theories when used with stepfamilies. This valuable resource is not only for practitioners but also for students in clinical training programs."

"This one-of-a-kind, practical book combines cutting-edge expertise with theory-based treatment planning and interventions for work with stepfamilies."

—Brandé Flamez, PhD
Lamar University

This welcome resource provides concrete examples of how to apply multiple family systems theories and treatment planning to common stepfamily issues. A single stepfamily case study is examined through the lenses of the Adlerian, transgenerational, prescriptive play therapy, structural, cognitive behavior, solution-focused, and narrative models to provide an understanding of the benefits of each approach and how to determine the best fit for a stepfamily's presenting issues. In addition, each chapter examines ethical concerns specific to counseling stepfamilies, issues of diversity, and current research on stepfamily assessment and therapeutic outcomes.
