Experiencing the death of a sibling can be a profound loss, but one that is often overlooked as a major life-altering event. Siblings (and sibling-like relationships) can play important roles in our lives. Often, these are the people who have shared elements of our upbringing and know us the best. The loss of a sibling often shifts family roles and dynamics in significant ways.

- Explore the ways in which this grief is often unrecognized or marginalized.
