Stepfamily Central - Rachelle Katz, Ed.D.
Kids are vulnerable when their parents divorce and can be effected by it for many years. Today on Stepfamily Central, Rachelle discusses what children can experience when their parents divorce, as well as how they can be helped, with Dr. Jeannette Lofas. Jeannette is affectionately considered to be the wise woman of the stepfamily community and is a leading authority on stepfamilies. In fact, she won a presidential award for her work. She has written five books: among which is Living in Step, Stepparenting: Everything You Need to Know to Make It Work, How to Be A Parent, and He's OK, She's OK: Honoring the Differences Between Men and Women. Jeannette is the President and Founder of Stepfamily Foundation, Inc. Besides working with stepfamilies to help improve their lives, Jeannette trains mental health professionals to become stepfamily coaches and counselors. She is offering another certification class the weekend of April 26 & 27th of this year.
