Birmingham Maple Clinic Reports that Sibling Aggression May Be Hurting Your Child’s Health

Troy, MI (PRWEB) June 22, 2013

Michigan mental health professionals at the Birmingham Maple Clinic recently reported on the latest study looking at sibling aggression and childhood mental health from the University of New Hampshire. As reported in the clinic’s blog, recent research on sibling aggression found that a child’s mental health suffers as a result of sibling aggression, something that was previously considered just a normal part of growing up. Lori Edelson, LMSW, LMFT, therapist at the Birmingham Maple Clinic said, “We used to think about sibling conflict as being just a part of growing up with others in the home, however, the latest research has found that sibling aggression has a much worse effect on a child’s mental health than we ever realized.”

UNH’s study, as reported by the clinic, found that 32 percent of the nearly 3600 children sampled reported being bullied by a sibling, and that even those who reported just one episode of bullying also reported higher incidences of mental health distress. Edelson said, “UNH’s research suggests that medical professionals, mental health professionals and parents work together to reduce sibling aggression in the home in order to reduce mental health distress. As found in the latest research, it doesn’t matter how severe or how frequently the bullying takes place – it still has a detrimental effect on a child’s mental health.”

The Birmingham Maple Clinic offers mental health counseling and family counseling to help resolve sibling conflict and create a calm and safe home environment. The clinic also treats depression and anxiety related to sibling aggression and other conditions related to adult and childhood mental health, and provides personalized care that is managed by an in-house team of mental health experts and a caring staff.

Birmingham Maple Clinic has been specializing in mental health services in Michigan since 1972, providing services for individuals, couples, families, groups and the community. The clinic provides treatment for a variety of psychological conditions, including child and adult ADHD, anxiety and panic disorders, chronic illness, depression, grief and loss, eating disorders, substance abuse, sexual addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder and marriage, family and relationship counseling.
