Helping Siblings Adjust

When siblings have to be separated, effort should be made to maintain frequent contact through visits, phone calls, and letters. It is important for the social worker to be sensitive to the loss the children are feeling. Workers should follow the same practice guidelines involved in helping children deal with separation from their parents (see “Helping a Child Through a Permanent Separation”). Separation and loss anxiety will be strongest immediately before or after placement.
