MAURIZIO ANDOLFI: Professor in Residence @ William Street Family Therapy Centre

“CHALLENGES & RESOURCES OF BLENDED FAMILIES: The new couple, between mutual love & child approval”

ONE-DAY WORKSHOP (Saturday 7 March 2020, 9.30am – 4.30pm)

The William Street Family Therapy Centre is proud to offer this one-day workshop by  a world famous Master Family Therapist & Master Teacher:

With the increase in marital separation and divorce worldwide, the number of blended families is almost equal to conventional families. However, the process of living together and forming a new, blended family is a very challenging experience. In this workshop, Maurizio Andolfi will address the main issues couples present in therapy, including fear of not being able to create a solid foundation and living together successfully.

The therapeutic goal is firstly to help both partners of the new couple to finalise their previous marriage/s, and to survive a potential painful divorce, without carrying unfinished business into their love relationship. Secondly, children of the previous families need to be helped to work through and accept the family separation, feeling that there were no “winners or losers” and that they don’t have to take sides, nor split their sibling alliance. Enlarging the sibling community is potentially very enriching, but sometimes jealousy and rivalry for more attention and love might occur, especially when the new couple have their own children.

Another therapeutic goal is to help the re-married couple to allow children to have access to both biological parents, keeping everybody involved. Considerable energy and compassion is required in stepfamilies to help children adjust, create boundaries and share parenting responsibilities, but it is essential to help the couple develop a strong bond based on mutual love and care. Andolfi will present his multigenerational approach through clinical cases and video material. This is a workshop not to be missed!!
