Practical Concerns about Siblings: Bridging the Research-practice Gap
Frances Fuchs Schachter, Richard K. Stone
Psychology Press, 1987 - Family & Relationships - 211 pages
Focusing on practical concerns and on current research, this new volume examines common sibling problems. The research findings, some published for the first time in this book, reveal the diverse ways that the sibling relationship contributes to the harmony or disharmony of the family and to the pattern of individual children s development within the family. This comprehensive volume will prove valuable to a broad range of professionals working with children and families, as well as to parents. The contributors attempt to bridge the gap between research and the practices of parents, therapists and educators. Common problems are examined, such as favoritism and the effects of a new sister or brother on a sibling. The concerns of children in special sibling relations, children in one-parent families, siblings of the mentally ill and disabled, and children facing the imminent death of a sibling, are also explored."
