We are pleased to link to this article recently published in Psychology Today, written by Replacement Child Forum Board member Sarah Vollman, MPS, ATR-BC, LICSW.
- A child born after the death of a sibling may be referred to as a subsequent or “replacement” child.
- Grieving parents may believe that a new family member will lessen their grief, but this can cause a range of possible repercussions.
- Possible repercussions may include low self-esteem and relationship difficulties.
We note two corrections in the article: The book Replacement Children, The Unconscious Script authors are Rita Battat and Abigail Brenner, and the publisher is Insight-Out Press.
