Differences in Age between Siblings: – the Personal Development of the “Afterthought” and their older Siblings (abstract No43)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


Themain assumption here is that people re-enact in their relationship with others not only what they experienced in parent-child relationship but also in their original
relationships with siblings, relationships that are so significant that they stand on
their own. While the dyadic analytic relationship tends to bring out a parent-child
transference, the transference relationships in the group are familial ones, the
transference is horizontal.
The group, offering the possibility of many transferential, “sibling” relationships,
is the best therapeutic setting in which to deal with this issue.
