Bridging the Gap: Clinical Applications of Research Findings on the Spouse and Stepparent Roles in Remarriage
family counseling, family therapy, remarriage, stepfamily, stepparent
A review of the findings from selected studies on the spousal and stepparental roles is offered. Most articles on the topic emphasize either reporting findings from research studies or outlining a series of clinical interventions. This article emphasizes both because effective clinical interventions with stepfamilies must stem from the relevant findings from empirical research. The review of literature serves as a necessary foundation for the nine clinical recommendations discussed.
