WITH HARVARD PSYCHOLOGIST DR. PATRICIA PAPERNOW
Septmber 24, 2012 | Westminster, VT—Harvard psychologist Dr. Patricia Papernow will lead Kurn Hattin Homes 21st annual Professional Development Conference on October 26, 2012 at the Kurn Hattin Homes campus in Westminster, VT. Dr. Papernow, an internationally recognized expert on stepfamilies and post-divorce parenting, will present a full-day workshop titled “Untangling Blended Families.”
Dr. Papernow’s workshop will focus on the five major challenges that stepfamilies face. Participants will discuss ways in which stepfamilies can meet these challenges and learn strategies for successful step-parenting and coexisting amicably with an ex-spouse. Dr. Papernow is author of the book, Becoming a Stepfamily. Additional information on Dr. Papernow is available at http://www.stepfamilyrelationships.com
According to Dr. Papernow, “Kids do best when parents, stepparents, and ex-spouses cooperate and collaborate, but this is often easier said than done. The good news is that we have a lot of information about what works and what does not to meet these challenges. The bad news is that what works is often not intuitive and there is a lot of bad advice out there.”
