Because we are brothers and sisters: Sibling relationships in alternative care
Year of Publication: 2012
“Because we are sisters and brothers” describes the most important outcomes of research activities and documentations about sibling relations in alternative care from five different countries. The SOS Children’s Villages associations in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Spain worked on the topic, and together they developed the content for this publication. The articles and recommendations are the result of studies done within SOS Children’s Villages
in cooperation with external experts and universities. The purpose is to draw attention to the importance of sibling relations – a topic which too often has been underestimated. “Because we are sisters and brothers” can contribute knowledge and expertise to the relatively new field of research concerning siblings in alternative care. “Because we are sisters and brothers” is a milestone which will hopefully enhance the quality and support
for these relationships!
