Uses experience of African-American families to inform European-American postdivorce families, including stepfamilies. Suggests strategies and coping mechanisms that stem from pedi-focal definition of family and are used in African-American families for postdivorce families to aid in their struggles with welfare of dependent children, confusion about family roles and household boundaries, and definition of family.
