Couples in a step-family setting often face a great number of challenges in creating a blended family culture that balances everyone’s needs. Healthy, inclusive and meaningful step-family relationships often function in different ways to biological families. The Stepfamily Realities workshop will address the key challenges that typically arise in the step-family setting and will also equip you with knowledge and tools to create a family environment that is functional, warm and inclusive for all family members.
