An Evaluation of the Remarriage and Stepfamily Self-Help Literature
Coleman, Marilyn; Nickleberry, Lynette
Family Relations, v58 n5 p549-561 Dec 2009
The purpose of this study was to critique in-print, post-1990 copyrighted stepfamily self-help books in order to provide guidance to helping professionals who work with these complex families. Of the 63 books reviewed, trained coders were able to strongly recommend 13 books for being well organized, for relying on clinical or empirical sources of information, and for offering practical and concrete advice specific enough for stepfamily members to implement.
