Because We Are Sisters and Brothers: Sibling relations and alternative care

"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 Village associations in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Spain have worked on the topic and together they developed the articles and recommendations in this publication. This publication can contribute knowledge and expertise to the relatively new field of research concerning siblings in alternative care. This will hopefully enhance the quality and support for these relationships and will help us to better understand the role of siblinghood for children in alternative care. The recommendations in particular can contribute to a better response to children and their needs in regard to their sibling relationships.
