I attended the Strengthening Stepfamilies workshop to become more effective at assisting families as they struggle to address problems that brought them into the legal system. I not only gained invaluable information, but I found Elizabeth's passion energizing. I have been able to apply what I learned to a myriad of situations, including as an advocate for families in the collaborative law process.

Making a stepfamily is a process! And it takes time—lots of time—and a serious commitment to work at creating a strong, successful stepfamily.
With remarriage having a high divorce rate, stepfamilies need information and support to beat the statistics. This playful and informative evening for single parents and stepfamilies includes Ms. Einstein's innovative demonstration of "emotional baggage" and a "trail map" that outlines the five normal stages of creating a stepfamily—Fantasy, Confusion, Crazy Time, Stability, and Commitment. With this information and her positive message, stepfamilies can succeed! Research shows that remarriage can provide a healthy environment in which children can continue to heal and develop—when adults have information, support, and guidance.
