Description
This intermediate workshop presents evidence-based factors that are linked to successfully treating stepfamilies using a developmental-systems framework. The workshop leaders present a review of the research, evidence-based practices and video examples from clinical families to demonstrate concepts and therapeutic skills to treat stepfamilies.
Learning Objectives
1. Identify differences between the family dynamics in a first-union family and a stepfamily.
2. Utilize the extensive body of research that clarifies the nature of the stepfamily and supports the interventions suggested.
3. Utilize interventions from within five overarching concepts: Psychoeducation, subsystems, empathy, communication correction, and systemic function.
4. Recognize and respond to clinical situations seen in video examples that demonstrate use of new and evidence-supported treatment.
