Remembering and Reinterpreting Sibling Bonds: Stephen Bank
Pages 13

The power of the sibling connection and the way in which sibling memory can saturate one's adult family life unhappily has preoccupied my clinical attention for many years, and I am constantly looking for evidence of these phenomena, even when I am not functioning in my role as a psychotherapist. In 1982, shortly after publication of the The Sibling Bond, Michael Kahn and I were invited to appear on TV "talk shows" across the United States. This had not been our original intention, because we had written for a clinical and academic audience. However, the American public hungers to look inside relationships, and it is almost impossible to do sibling research without someone from the media asking for information.
