Ron’s material is completed in 8 sessions with couples and includes 7 different steps to creating a healthy step family. Ron’s 7 steps are identified as followed:
STEP Up to Discover a Redemptive God
STEP down Your Expectations
Two-STEP: Your Marriage
STEP in Line With the Parenting Team
Side STEP Common Pitfalls
STEP Through the Wilderness Wanderings
STEP Over Into the Promised Land
Ron’s material addresses all of the above points from both a biblical and psycho-educational model in order to help his families enter into a healthy and loving relationship. If people are interested in the material, it comes with a book, DVD series, and a participant’s guide that allows them to take notes as they go. If you struggle with the material, a counselor can help.
Over the next few weeks, I will address the different steps and key factors within them. If you are a step family, or are becoming a step family, keep up your journey. Your hard work will be worth it!
