“How to Make Peace With Your Sibling” by Dr. Evan Imber-Black
Evan Imber-Black, Ph.D., LMFT, Director of the Center for Families and Health at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, discusses how to make peace and enjoy a happier, healthier relationship with your sibling in this article for Next Avenue. Dr. Imber-Black addresses the ways that the topics may change — money, caring for parents, holiday plans, children — but the tension between siblings may remain on an endless loop. The answer to the question “What can I do differently to create a different outcome?” is often nowhere to be found. The article highlights the ways that changing your sibling relationship starts with recognizing that the problem isn’t one person’s fault. It takes two people to create the clash — though often there are others lurking in the shadows.
