This is a research based programme written by Dr Lisa Doodson that has been specifically designed for individuals and couples in stepfamilies. It offers support and advice on a range of problems common to many stepfamilies. The course is delivered as a single one day course. The workshops are run by Dr Doodson or an experienced parenting facilitator and include a mix of presentations, exercises and group discussions.
I don't currently have any planned workshops however if you are interested in attending one of these courses I would highly recommend my friends and colleagues at 'The Family Space'. They have been trained by me and offer material based heavily on the Happy Steps course. Please contact email@example.com for more info.
'Lisa has offered me invaluable, friendly support and has given me achievable coping strategies to deal with what felt, at times, like an unchangeable situation. Things looked much brighter immediately after seeing her for the first time and she has made me feel much calmer and happier than I have done for ages'.

'I found Lisa's knowledge and experience of the stepparenting field invaluable to me, also exchanging views and 'hints and tips' with other stepparents has been really helpful.' Susan, Reading, Sep 2015
'This is just a quick update to tell you how much your step parenting course that we attended in February helped us. I think that the children growing up and becoming more mature has also been a factor, but without your course we would still be in a muddle. We are having more fun as a family and I am pleased to say that my husband and my youngest son are actually enjoying each others company' Christina, London, April 2012
