Editorial Reviews


...enormously moving book...present a powerful argument for emotional support for the ill child and the family, including siblings with their own special needs. This book makes an important contribution...
British Journal of Psychotherapy

This book contains up to date information concerning the treatment of a broad array of psychological disorders seen in children and adolescents. The contributors to this volume represent a top notch group of scientist-practitioners. The chapters are very well written and extremely informative. The detailed presentations of assessment and treatment techniques make this book an excellent reference for clinicians, as well as a terrific introduction for students attempting to develop a repertoire of clinical skills. This book will be viewed as a most welcomed addition to the applied psychologist library.
Alan M. Gross, PhD
Professor of Psychology, The University of Mississippi

This work representsan important step in advancing the awareness of the effects of death on siblings, and a call to those of us in the health profession to recognize and intervene effectively in order to prevent compounding the loss.
Harvey J. Cohen, MD, PhD
Chief of Staff, Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford University

An impressive pioneering study of the far-ranging and long-lasting impact on growing children of the chronic illness and death of a sibling before reaching adulthood. A major contribution to the psychoanalytic literature on the complexly imbricated nature of sibling relationships, far transcending early psychoanalytic formulations focused too narrowly just on sibling rivalry and its consequences. A 'must read' for everyone concerned with trauma, loss, coping, and development in both their clinical ramifications and in their implications for our expanded psychoanalytic theoretical understandings of the life course and its vicissitudes.
RobertS. Wallerstein, MD
Past-President, American Psychoanalytic Association and International Psychoanal

A child's illness and death is a family tragedy, terrifying and ultimately devastating for every member of the family. Too often we give little attention to the child's siblings. Fanos brings home to us with insight and compassion the siblings' reactions: their resentments, their guilts, their fears, and their deep and persisting sense of loss. This book should be consulted regularly by all parents of seriously ill children, and it should be on the desk of all professionals who would provide parents of seriously ill children with support and counsel or provide siblings of seriously ill children with understanding.

Format: Paperback
A study of the long term psychological impact of loosing a sibling to cystic fibrosis. Many intriguing anecdotes and quotes and excellent analysis from a freudian point of view dealing with the associated guilt feelings and life choices made by those affected by this experience.
