This second edition synthesizes the emerging knowledge base on the diversity of stepfamilies, their inherent concerns, and why so relatively little is still known about them. Its extensive findings shed needed light on family arrangements relatively new to the literature (e.g., cohabitating stepparents), the effects of these relationships on different family members (e.g., stepsiblings, stepgrandparents), the experiences of gay and lesbian stepfamilies, and the stigma against non-nuclear families.

Produktbeschreibung
This second edition synthesizes the emerging knowledge base on the diversity of stepfamilies, their inherent concerns, and why so relatively little is still known about them. Its extensive findings shed needed light on family arrangements relatively new to the literature (e.g., cohabitating stepparents), the effects of these relationships on different family members (e.g., stepsiblings, stepgrandparents), the experiences of gay and lesbian stepfamilies, and the stigma against non-nuclear families. Coverage reviews effective therapeutic and counseling interventions for emotional, familial, and social challenges of stepfamilies, as well as the merits of family education and self-help programs. The authors explore prevailing myths about marriage, divorce, and stepfamily life while expanding the limits of stepfamily research. Among the topics included: - The cultural context of stepfamilies. - Couple dynamics in stepfamilies. - Gay and lesbian couples in stepfamilies. - The dynamics of stepparenting. - Siblings, half-siblings, and stepsiblings. - Effects of stepfamily living on children. - Clinical perspectives on stepfamily dynamics. For researchers and clinicians who work with families, it enriches the literature as it offers insights and guidelines for effective practice as well as possible avenues for future research.

Autorenporträt
Lawrence Ganong and Marilyn Coleman have studied, taught, counseled, and mediated with stepfamilies and stepfamily members for over 30 years. They are prolific authors (7 books, over 200 journal articles), whose writing and thinking about stepfamilies have heavily influenced researchers and clinicians for many years. In their persistent use of a risk and resilience approach to studying stepfamily relationships, Ganong and Coleman have given the field many new ideas, such as "concrete babies," "inherited stepgrandparents," "mothering but not a mother role," and the "end table phenomenon." Their 2004 edition of this book was the most comprehensive examination of stepfamily relationships to that point in time, and this volume is even more wide-ranging.
