Sibling Rivals

Sibling Rivals: Conflict Resolution for Children with I/DD and their Siblings

For this webinar, Kara Kushnir will discuss the uniqueness of the relationship between typical siblings and their brother/sister(s) with I/DD, including how siblings may perceive their sibling, how conflicts between siblings may be the same and different among them compared to typical sibling relationships, and ways families can respond in an effective manner. Specific responses to various situations will be discussed, including how parents can assess the size of the conflict and, thus, the most effective way to respond. Best practices, practical solutions and safety for siblings will be discussed.
