Happy Patchwork Couples

How love can succeed with a new family

Love with baggage

Patchwork couples often find it difficult to concentrate fully on their love for one another, because there are others involved in their relationship right from the start: separating from the ex-partners puts a drain on their energy and the children are also in need of a lot of love and attention at that same moment. Patchwork family therapist Katharina Grünewald encourages patchwork couples to create space for their love and to love each other with confidence. Staying focused on everyday life, she explains in a sensitive way how couples can set boundaries and strengthen their relationship with her six phases for dealing with turbulent daily family life.
