Blended Families Seminar to be Offered to the Public

Siloam Springs, Ark (March 2, 2000) — The PeopleCARE Clinics at John Brown University are offering "Blended Families: Getting the right Mix!" on March 14 at 7:00 p.m. The free seminar will meet in the Dye Lounge on the campus of John Brown University. The seminar is the sixth in the LifeSolutions Seminar series offered by PeopleCARE Clinics to the community.

The seminar will focus on teaching how to give people a handle on the dynamics of a blended family and to understand the characteristics of a productive step-family. Nancy Schmer Hoffman, R.N., L.P.C. will be teaching the seminar.

"The blended family is predicted to over take the percentage of the typical intact family by 2008 and become the most typical type of family system in the United States," said Hoffman. "Blended families come in many different forms and each family is helped by understanding the most common areas of misunderstanding that many blended families will encounter. The key to a successful blended family is a lot of love and flexibility."
