Product Description

Product Description

Sibling Abuse Trauma will enhance your knowledge of assessment and clinical intervention strategies for treating intersibling abuse trauma in children, families, and adults. This informative book features:
  • an overview of sibling relationship development, sibling physical assault, incest, and psychological maltreatment
  • individual and systemic risk factors
  • gender differences
  • traumatic effects
  • clinical case studies and interviews
  • a sibling abuse assessment schedule
  • specific sibling-oriented interventions

    Due to the lack of research specifically focused on sibling abuse issues, there is a gap in the training and education of abuse trauma professionals. Sibling Abuse Trauma is an innovative book that focuses not only on sibling incest, but also on sibling physical assault and psychological maltreatment from a survivor’s perspective.

    The authors utilize critical and empirical findings and rich case examples to illustrate how sibling abuse affects individual and family development, making further research and education in this area imperative. Whether you incorporate these findings into your clinical practice or become inspired to conduct your own research, Sibling Abuse Trauma will improve your understanding of how to treat and evaluate individuals and families with sibling abuse-related concerns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely integrates research, theory, and clinical practice . 13 Oct 1998
By Read aloud Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Nicely integrates theory, research, and the considerable clinical experience of its two authors. It is written with a healthy and complex appreciation of broader issues in the field of family violence and family therapy and gives a great deal of thought-provoking case material for those interested in understanding more about sibling abuse dynamics and its potential treatment strategies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enhances practitioner's knowledge of sibling abuse dynamics 18 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book affords significant attention to the trauma of sibling abuse. Until this impressive work by Caffaro and Conn-Caffaro, we have not paid enough attention to sibling relationships in our research and practice on family violence and child abuse and neglect. The authors bring considerable insight and clinical experience to the issue of sibling abuse. This book will enhance practitioner's knowledge of sibling abuse dynamics and treatment strategies and makes a contribution to the entire field by encouraging a broader discussion of the life-span developmental impact of sibling abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome and required addition to the literature. 13 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Over the last two decades, there has been a proliferation of research and writing on child maltreatment. Debates have ensued over children's memory, suggestibility, and truthfulness. Research has mushroomed on child sexual abuse and child abuse and neglect. There has even been focus on the perpetrator and the nonoffending parent. One area, however, has almost consistently been ignored: the area of sibling abuse. This book is a welcome and required addition to our developing literature on abuse.
5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed resource 17 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sibling Abuse provides a very much needed resource for clinicians. I especially appreciate Dr. Caffaro's systemic and distinctly non-pathologizing approach to the painful dynamics involved in these cases. Illustrating with multiple case studies, Dr. Caffaro describes several different patterns of sibling abuse and shows us how to successfully engage the family in addressing the underlying issues. I have shared this book with many of my supervisees, and, although it is written for clinicians, I have encouraged some of my clients to read it as well. Dr. Patricia Papernow, Psychologist
