Blended Family Struggles

Working this week with a couple who has strife from typical blended family issues. A wished-for bond is usually a long process and often not as rich as all hope it will be. I offered out an image that seemed helpful for perspective. Here it is: Try it out in your blended family. — If your spouse and their ex both died one week after you married and you were now the sole parent of his/her kids for life, what would look and feel different in how you relate? — It is also true that an exercise like this can be very dynamic and fruitful if EMDR techniques are folded into the process. Have fun with this and see what happens!
