Traditional family therapy, which
is often non-directive and "feeling" oriented, does not take into
account the specific dynamics and behaviours that characterize stepfamilies.
Following the work of Jeanette Lofas at the
Stepfamily Foundation in New York, we employ an organizational model. Our approach is
directive, research based, and solution oriented.
We regard our clients as:
normal individuals in a new
and complex life situation
who can and will achieve
harmonious relationships and family stability when they
understand the nature of
the difficulties they are confronting, and
take appropriate actions
to resolve them.
