Parents and stepparents are looking for solutions to their coparenting and stepfamily issues. Many will end up in litigation spread out over months or years. Stressful? Yes, it is hard on finances, relationships, and emotions. The Academy for Coparenting and Stepfamily Stability by Tricia Powe Books and More is designed to strengthen parents and stepparents leading stepfamilies. Does this include you?
About your service provider, Tricia Powe:
1. For three decades, I have given presentations to educators, social workers, parents and stepparents like you.
2. I understand the complex nature of second+ marriages with children from past relationships. This includes the UNblended stepfamily, even when Parental Alienation behaviors have hurt you and your relationship with the children.
3. Personal insights: As a lifetime stepfamily member, I have compassion for the inner struggles of children, parents, and stepparents.
4. Professional balance: In 1998, years into my work and program development as The Stepfamily Strategist, I met collaborative attorney and mediation pioneer Woody Mosten through the suggestion of my instructor while earning a certificate in Mediation for Human Resource Managers at UC Irvine, Ext.
Throughout my training hours for the mediation certificate to add to my research-informed program for parents and stepparents leading blended families, Woody Mosten forever changed how I viewed mediation and the power of its outcome potential.
5. Proud to be a cutting-edge program creator, stepfamily life educator, and advocate for coparenting and stepfamily (blended family) stability.
Summed up: Personal insights with professional balance. This blend of experience is essential to have as the parents and stepparents I reach can sometimes felt judged and misunderstood by those around them.
Coparenting and Stepfamily Stability is in Tricia Powe Books and More's academy name because it is the mission:
To help all the parents and stepparents turn complex experiences into opportunities for growth!
To equip parents, stepparents, and caregiving grandparents with the details that help them navigate blended family parenting without rocking the boat -- too much!
To help couples leading stepfamilies identify their family's blend blockers and address their challenging issues with an attitude of carefronting* instead of confronting.
Transforming coparenting differences from arguments with low blows to scaling the bonds between the couple and with the children or teens they are co-raising -- and what to do when they find they can't, possibly because of parental alienation.
