From the Publisher:
Siblings have a major influence in human development and behavior - perhaps even more so than parents. Yet siblings have been seriously underrepresented in the research literature and sibling books for professionals are rare. Surprisingly, there are no current volumes which consider the range of developmental, clinical, and cultural issues related to siblings.
Sibling Development: Implications for Mental Health Practitioners addresses this gap by offering practitioners and students a professional clinical reference guide to sibling relationships and their impact on childhood and adult development. Each chapter includes practice considerations, case studies, and commentary to help readers assess and understand the impact of sibling relationships.
Discussing various examples of sibling influence-including sibling contagion, siblings and gender, and siblings as socializers-this textbook provides readers with effective strategies for treating various family issues in practice by applying sibling theories of development.Key Topics:
adopted siblings, and siblings in immigrant families
