Addressing sibling conflict, trauma, and friendship
We’re building the Center on Sibling Dynamics™
to explore and enhance sibling relationships. Watch us grow.
“Let it Out” – facilitated peer discussion groups
We will pilot three different closed, facilitated peer discussion groups online for adults:
- who felt Targeted by a sibling in the past or diminished in the present,
- who have been Aggressive or dismissive towards a sibling, and would like to change,
- who would benefit from a Bereavement group to deal with grief for a sibling who passed recently or long ago.
Who is a sibling? Who do you regard as a sibling? For these services this includes those with a shared biological mother and/or father, adopted siblings, those in shared foster care, or those from a shared household. For “only children,” a sibling can include a cousin, close friend, or neighbor who is ‘like a brother/sister/sibling.’ With social media and digital games, a sibling can include someone online with whom one develops an intimate sibling-like relationship.
Dates and times to be announced.
Contact us if you are interested in joining one of our groups.
