Stepfamily success is dependent on establishing roles and responsibilities that work within the new family.  The expected roles of a nuclear family do not apply to step parents.  There is a need for clear, concrete roles for each person within the blended family. The therapeutic techniques from a traditional family do not work.  Focusing on the developmental cycles of a stepfamily teaches the members how to problem solve while getting their needs met, thus resulting in a successful family unit.
