Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A growing body of literature indicates that clinical attention to sibling relationship enhancement can be beneficial for relational outcomes and broader psychological well-being. Working with clients on strengthening their sibling relationship can impact not only the sibling dyad but can serve as an important source of support enhancing well-being and adjustment. In addition to a clinical review of the importance of integrating sibling relationship issues in therapy, the current paper highlights an effective therapeutic approach to sibling relationship discord including two case studies describing the effective integration of this modality.
