The Smart Stepfamily DVD and Participant's Guide

Whether for individual or group use, The Smart Stepfamily DVD will help you become stepfamily smart. This study utilizes the following format 1) group discussion; 2) watch the video; 3) discuss & apply the video content; 4) reinforce the teaching with between session reading in the softcover book.

The book, DVD, and Participant's Guide can be purchased separately or together. The Revised and Expanded Edition of The Smart Stepfamily was released in May, 2014. The cover of the DVD series was updated to match it (though the content of the video series is the same as before) and a new Participant's Guide was released with it. Previously, you downloaded a study guide and printed it for participant's. Now, you need to purchase the new Participant's Guide for each person in your group. You can order from FamilyLife, Amazon, or wherever books are sold.
