"America's Remarriage Experts"
Trusted family counselors and authors Dr. David and Lisa Frisbie have often been called "America's Remarriage Experts" due to their extensive research on the post-divorce family type, including stepfamilies and blended families. They are presenters and lecturers on topics such as single parenting, divorce recovery, and blending a family at universities and public forums worldwide.
They are involved with several specific projects to train family counselors in world areas where family education has been insufficient or not available.
