How can stepfamilies beat the odds by building strong relationships? Dr. Carey demonstrates that it is through therapeutic interventions that address their unique needs and challenges.

Full Description:
Pervasive cultural images of the “wicked stepmother” and the “angry ex” make it nearly impossible for individuals to enter blended family structures with a healthy outlook. Ensnared in a cycle of negative thought patterns that feed into destructive behaviors toward each other, stepfamilies desperately need therapists who can help them fight through these traps and build stronger relationships. 

Using humor, and clinical and personal experiences, fused with solution-focused therapies, this webinar explores the specific needs and challenges of stepfamilies and teaches clinical interventions you can integrate immediately into your clinical work with them. Come learn about the revised definitions of stepfamilies and how to apply an evidence-based structured session approach for working with them.
