Abstract

Remarriage presents a crisis point at which workers can offer brief preventive interventions to family members in multiple parenting situations. The author makes an analogy between separation experiences of children in placement and those of children in stepfamilies to emphasize the children's need to mourn losses and to develop a sense of identity through continuity with significant adults, prior to beginning new bonding relationships. Suggestions are made for attracting stepfamilies to agencies for help with problems faced in transitional stages of the life cycle.
