This much-needed resource offers insight into building and maintaining satisfying and successful stepfamily relationships. As the number of stepfamilies continues to increase, counselors and other mental health professionals are likely to encounter clients seeking help in navigating these often complicated relationships.

In this book, Dr. Gold emphasizes the principles and practices of narrative therapy as a means to address key concerns within the family system, reauthor dominant social myths surrounding stepfamily life, and create realistic treatment plans that are inclusive of all members of the family. Detailing the inherent strengths and challenges of the stepfamily experience, he provides an in-depth examination of the roles of each member in a blended family, including stepfathers and stepmothers, ex-spouses, grandparents, and children. This book is an excellent guide to thoughtful, practical, and empirically validated interventions for helping stepfamilies thrive.


"Joshua Gold has crafted a timely, highly readable, and clinically relevant work that will be of interest to both trainees and experienced clinicians. Each chapter is structured to confront and reauthor dominant social myths about stepfamilies and offer creative solutions. Gold has combined developmental and narrative models that engage the reader, and he continues to make lasting contributions to the field of marriage and family counseling."

Editor, The Family Journal

"The blending of families is often a difficult task for family members and for the counselors who work with them. Stepping In, Stepping Out: Creating Stepfamily Rhythm is a valuable resource to help counselors address the unique potentialities and problems involved in the development of well-functioning stepfamilies where family members and extended family members step with rather than step on one another."
