Programme NameSibling Bullying
Summary of Topics Covered

This is a talk about an overlooked and unrecognised form of bullying. Sibling Bullying is different from the usual family rows and bickering. It is more prevalent than school bullying. Research consistently finds that between one third and one half of people experience it. Because it is a subject not talked about, it is difficult for parents to recognise and manage. Victims of sibling bullying often suffer life-long distress and/or mental health difficulties.

This talk aims to inform the community what it is, what it looks like, how to recognise it, and how to deal with it. This talk is also for victims of sibling bullying to help validate and understand their experiences.

Emma O'Friel did a masters thesis in Psychology (M.Psych.Sc) on Sibling Bullying at University College Dublin, and wrote in the Irish Times Health Supplement on the subject.
