Selected Resources on Sibling Abuse: An Annotated Bibliography for Researchers, Educators and Consumers.
Frazier, Billie H.; Hayes, Kathleen C.
This publication is part of an ongoing project which produces bibliographies on family topics. This bibliography, begun in July 1993, is a compilation of selected materials on a type of family violence which receives little attention. When all types of mild aggression and extreme violence toward a sibling are considered, it appears that sibling abuse is the most common and the most overlooked form of family violence. Parents many times accept sibling rivalries as part of family life, but in the last few years, researchers have been investigating lasting deleterious effects of early experiences with sisters and brothers. The annotated entries provided here are divided into four categories: (1) Monographs; (2) Journal Articles; (3) Dissertation; and (4) Newspaper Articles. Annotations range in length from one to five paragraphs. It is hoped that this bibliography will stimulate further empirical research into the causes, dynamics, and effects of sibling abuse. Sources of additional information and an author index are included. (RJM)
