This site has been created as a resource for anyone who has lost a sister or brother.
The SiblingConnection is a not-for-profit organization, based in St. Louis, Missouri. Our vision is that
bereaved siblings will receive the support they need. Our mission is to provide resources to grieving siblings
through counseling, the SiblingConnection website, education, research, writing, and to raise public
awareness about the profound impact of sibling loss.
Here you can learn about the grief process from MOVIES,
from ART, and from PSYCHOLOGY.
You can read the articles listed in the left hand column and you will find STORIES from other site visitors.

A graduate student needs our help in her study of bereaved siblings. If you are interested in participating, read her notice here...
My name is Jodi Flesner, and I am a doctoral student in Counselor Education at University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am collecting data for my dissertation, which is being supervised by
Dr. Susan Kashubeck-West at University of Missouri-St. Louis. For my dissertation, I am exploring sibling grief and meaning making in bereaved siblings.
The purpose of this research is to give voice to grieving siblings and better understand the phenomenon of sibling loss. If you are at least 18 years old and have experienced
the death of a sibling, I would greatly appreciate your participation in my study.
The survey is anonymous, unless you choose to provide your contact information so I can invite you to takepart in future studies on sibling grief.
It will take about 15-30 minutes to complete. For those interested in participating in this study, click on the following hypertext link http://tinyurl.com/SiblingGriefSurvey which will take you to the consent form and survey.
This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board for protection of human subjects at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Please feel free to forward this e-mail announcement to eligible friends and other relevant groups or listservs. Thanks in advance for your help with this project!
