Our Workshops and Training on the Sibshop Model
The Sibling Support Project is a national project dedicated to the concerns of brothers and sisters of people with special health, developmental and mental health concerns. We specialize in providing lively, family-friendly, and highly rated workshops on sibling (and father and grandparent!) issues to parents, service providers, university staff and students, and siblings of all ages.
We see our workshops and trainings as having multiple benefits. Here are just three:
- Sibshops—a unique service in most communities--get started. School-age sibs connect with peers (usually for the first time) and form friendships that can provide a lifetime of support.
- Parents and service providers turn their attention to the issues faced by brothers, sisters, and other traditionally overlooked family members. This discussion will change the way parents look at all of their children and how service providers look at the families they serve.
- Adult brothers and sisters connect with their peers to offer fellow sibs validation, support, and information—and explore the creation of much-needed adult sibling initiatives.
We've conducted workshops on sibling issues in all 50 states and eight countries. And we're proud to have helped over 450 communities start Sibshops of their own.
We'd welcome an opportunity to present at your agency or your next conference or training event. We can help assure that your workshops are as affordable as possible--and reach the widest number of families and service providers. Here is a description of our workshops and training on the Sibshop model. If you would like to learn more about our workshops, seminars, and keynotes please call us or contact us by email and we'd be happy to send you more information.
