The impact of sibling relationships on how we develop has been dramatically underemphasized in the literature on child development. Drawing together new and established research, this accessible text contends that sibling relationships are crucial to professionals' understanding of the children and families they work with. It offers a theoretically grounded and culturally sensitive account of the many-facetted complexities of sibling relationships, emphasizing the significance of these for practice and the ways in which the effectiveness of work with children and families can be enhanced by promoting positive sibling relationships.
Robert Sanders is a Lecturer in Applied Social Studies at the University of Wales, Swansea.
