The growth of step-families has been one of the most dramatic changes in British family life in recent decades. Currently, more than one in twelve children live in a step-family. Using clinical experience in child and adolescent psychiatry, and the systemic approach to family therapy, the authors make a unique contribution to our understanding of step-family life in Britain. 336 pages.
