The rapidly growing Latino population in the United States underscores the need for culturally appropriate Latino stepfamily education. Research to inform relationship education about positive functioning for Latino stepfamilies is virtually nonexistent. Current research relevant to this issue includes general stepfamily research, culturally appropriate education, heterogeneity in the Latino community, and Latino acculturation. Religion and familism are highly valued by many Latinos and have implications for stepfamily education. Cultural characteristics also have implications for the effective implementation of Latino stepfamily education. (Author abstract)
