Sibling Forgiveness Book to be Published

In October 2010 my new book, Mom Loves You BestForgiving and Forging Sibling Relationships, will be published by  New Horizon Press.

I wrote it with my daughter Kali Cress Peterson. It is a book to help midlife siblings and really siblings of all ages  get to the bottom of a bruised brother or sister relationship and find absolution. This takes getting to the bottom of something we call an “I Hate You Story.”

Who are we?

We are professionals in the field of social work and gerontology and have led many workshops on the problems brothers and sisters encounter. We have worked with many adult siblings who were angry with their brothers and sisters and researched and written about sibling rivalries and issues. We learned that the antagonism many siblings feel toward each other came from a pain deep down inside them, erupting from something that happened many years ago. They have avoided their brothers or sisters and do not feel good when seeing them, but had a hard time pinpointing where the hurt came from. You may be one of these people. You may also be a person who now wants to try to resolve the rift between your sibling and yourself. Many things can happen in our lives that lead us to think we want to make peace with a sibling.

This new blog should help you and your sibling move towards peace, forgiveness, better emotional health and kindness towards yourselves. I will be posting here daily.  Please join me and follow my new sibling  blog.

    This is an excellent topic, Cathy, for GCMs who work with families. You presented on this book at the recent NAPGCM-SF meeting, and I found it very informative and useful to apply to siblings associated with my cases.
