Working with Single-Parent Families

Robert J. Ackerman, Ph.D.

Over the past years, the form of American families has changed greatly. The greatest change has been the emergence of many single-parent families. This workshop will examine the myths about single-parent families, the uniqueness of the single-parent family system, implications for children, facilitating positive change due to trauma such as addiction, and building healthy single-parent families.
