This is a research based programme written by Professor 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 blended families. The course is delivered via a series of 4 interactive group video calls, designed to offer a similar experience to an in person workshop - but with less travel! The workshops are run by Lisa and include a mix of presentations, exercises and group discussions.

'I would just like to say a huge thank you for offering support and networking with others. Attending the workshop has encouraged me to find confidence to challenge behaviours in our home in a constructive way. Thank you. Also accepting that the way I feel is normal is so refreshing.'

'This course has been an absolute life line! Lisa is warm, encluraging, understanding and incredibly reassuring. On the course, Lisa not only talks about the very real difficulties of step parenting to help you realise you're not alone, but she also gives very practical and realistic ideas and advice on how to positively move forward. She has given ,my husband and me a means to talk about the difficult topics and I no longer feel alone and bewildered in a totally unknown situation, but supported, heard and better equipped to support my husband and continue to work towards building a new, different, but no less important family. Thank you so much Lisa!'

'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 2018
'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 2018
