Fern Schumer Chapman: Importance of Maintaining Sibling Relationships in Adulthood | All Together #6

For some of us, our siblings are our first playmates. On top of that, they also play a very crucial role in instilling each other’s social qualities. So much so that being estranged from our siblings can give us a deep sense of loss and can negatively impact our ability to connect with others in our growing-up years.

In this episode of All Together: Family Science Insights Podcast, host Dina Sargeant is joined by Fern Schumer Chapman, a former journalist and an author of the book “Brothers, Sisters, Strangers: Sibling Estrangement and the Road to Reconciliation”. 

Fern shares her perception of how the family is defined in this modern society, the core value of listening and understanding each other’s experiences, and how it affects relationships with our siblings. She also talks about the practices she used to reconcile with her only brother, from whom she has been estranged for the majority of her adult life.
