Sibling abuse is the physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse of one sibling by another. It is estimated that there are 40 million sibling abuse survivors in America alone. Research indicates that the long-term effects of surviving sibling abuse can include: Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, inability to trust, relationship difficulties, alcohol and drug addiction, learned helplessness, eating disorders, PTSD, difficulty with focus, wanting to isolate, and panic attacks. Unfortunately, little attention is given to the issue because of the victims' silence and the parents' tendencies to view the abuse as nothing more than "innocent" sibling rivalry. The main goal of this group is to bring survivors of sibling abuse together to share personal experiences and help each other heal from our past so that we can move forward to a better and brighter future.
