Surviving and Succeeding as a Stepmother

Though you may have approached your marriage and blended family with great joy and high hopes, the reality can be quite different. Your children or your spouse’s children may be less enthusiastic. Being a stepmother is a unique role in family life. Adjustment takes a lot of time, and loving and caring for one another develops slowly. This group will help participants with the challenges and opportunities associated with being a stepmother.

Six Mondays, 11 am – noon, beginning February 13
Facilitator: Mary Karlan, LCSW
