(p.201) 8 After a Child Dies: Helping the Siblings
Hospice Care for Children

Betty Davies

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the assumptions basic to the concept of sibling bereavement. It analyzes the responses of children to a sibling's death and some of the factors that influence siblings' grief. The chapter suggests that in helping siblings, hospice personnel must remember that the goal of intervention is not for siblings to get over their grief but rather to acknowledge it and to learn to integrate it into their lives, for it is a memory that they will carry with them forever.
