Therapy can help discover and create conflict resolution strategies for stepfamilies and families. Families will receive information and coaching around effective conflict resolution strategies and discuss typical conflicts and issues that may arise. “Rules for fighting fair” can be developed by a couple in order to establish productive and safe methods for handling the inevitable conflict within the new stepfamily or family.
Therapy can create a place for couples to receive information around what to expect when forming a new stepfamily or family. Couples can develop a unified vision for the foundation of the family and strengthen communication skills. Using the therapy session as practice, couples can create new routines and habits around discussing weekly incidents.
