Siblings and Mental Illness: Heredity vs. Environment.
Rowe, David C.; Elam, Patricia
Journal of Children in Contemporary Society, v19 n3-4 p115-30 Spr 1987
Siblings are far more likely to be different than alike in personality and psychopathology. Different genes and different environmental experiences can account for why one sibling becomes mentally ill and another is not affected. Environmental experiences play a much greater role in sibling differentiation than has been previously recognized. (Author/BJV)
