It is rare to find a psychoanalytic book on theory or technique in which siblings play a part in the way the internal world is conceived. There are a few publications, (Agger, 1988; Bank & Kahn, 1997; Colonna & Newman, 1983; Mitchell, 2000; Sharpe & Rosenblatt, 1994) in which, with the exception of Mitchell, the work has been centred in the U.S. There is little reference to the concept of a sibling transference in the analytic journals and when it is mentioned, it is analysed as a displaced oedipal transference.
