Ready to Strengthen Your Step Family?

Ready to Strengthen Your Step Family?

Are you a parent or step-parent seeking support to navigate the unique challenges you face as a blended family? We’re pleased to announce the dates for our upcoming FREE Strengthening Your Step Family programme, starting on May 29, 2024.

At NFC, we understand that stepfamily dynamics can be complex, but they don’t have to be overwhelming. Our programme is designed to provide a safe and supportive space for parents and step-parents to come together, learn, and grow as a family unit. With years of experience under our belts, we have helped many step families in Hawke’s Bay find innovative ways to build better relationships and create a positive environment for their tamariki.

We get positive feedback from parents who have participated in this programme before. “It has taken away my fear and normalized our situation. It has given me tools,” said one participant. Another commented: “It has made us talk about things more openly and honestly. Given us direction. Made me think blended families can work.”

We are able to offer this programme free to local families, thanks to the support of philanthropic funding from Hawke’s Bay Children’s Holding Trust.

What is the Strengthening Your Step Family Programme About?

Our free six-week programme is research-based and tailored specifically for couples. Each session runs for 2.5 hours, one evening a week. Sessions include a mix of teaching modules, group activities, and discussions aimed at addressing the unique challenges faced by step/blended families.

Throughout the programme, participants will explore different aspects of building a successful stepfamily, including:

– Understanding the complexities of stepfamily dynamics

– Navigating the stages of the stepfamily life cycle

– Recognising and managing stressors within the family unit

– Strengthening the couple relationship as the foundation of a successful stepfamily

Who would benefit from the programme?

Strengthening Your Step Family is designed for couples in blended families who are looking to strengthen their relationships and gain practical tools for overcoming challenges. Whether you’re a biological parent, a step-parent, or both, our sessions offer valuable insights and strategies to help you thrive as a whanau.

Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. We can support you to build a stronger, happier family. Contact us for more information or register your interest in the programme here.
