Siblings: Coming Unstuck and Putting Back The Pieces

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843122326 | ISBN 10: 1843122324

"Our lives revolved around my sister's needs. We didn't do a lot of the things other families did. It upset me when people stared, both for my own sake and for Helen, who I wanted to protect. People would actually stop in their tracks and watch our slow progress... inside there was a growing collection of feelings that confused me and which I could not share with anyone..."
The brothers and sisters of children with special needs are often overlooked in families struggling to cope. Kate Strohm, an experienced health professional and journalist with a sister who has cerebral palsy, tells her story of growing up with confusion and distress before 'putting back the pieces' and reaching a greater understanding and acceptance.
Other siblings also tell their stories of struggling with resentment, guilt, grief and isolation, their fears and their joys as they grew up with children who were 'different'.
