Sibling Support Groups

Growing up with a brother or sister who has a chronic medical condition, a developmental disability or a mental health disorder can be very challenging for the well siblings. There are a number of reasons and ways that this can affect siblings including confusion, guilt, sadness, jealousy, anger, and despair. There are so many thoughts and emotions that go along with the experience of being this type of sibling and many of these are thoughts and emotions that other friends and even family members can’t always understand. For this reason we offer a very special program to honor the siblings of kids with  developmental disabilities and mental health disorders.

Our sibling support groups offer a chance for siblings to connect with other kids and teens who are going through the same things and understand all of the thoughts and emotions that they may often be too afraid to share.  These groups provide a safe and supportive environment for kids and teens to talk about their feelings, participate in dynamic therapeutic activities, and experience the power of connecting with others just like them. Our sibling support groups meet monthly and require an intake with our group leader.  Please feel free to contact us at 781-400-2641 or Connect@childtherapyinboston.com
