Synopsis

The Importance of Sibling Relationships in Psychoanalysis by Prophecy Coles
'Coles' book starts from the claim that traditionally psychoanalysis, in stressing the relations of conflict between children and parents, has tended to overlook and displace the co-operative relations between siblings. This is a claim clearly worth investigating.' - Professor Richard Wollheim

Reviews

'This book offers us a refreshingly new look into the world of sibling relationships, and how these can profoundly colour emotional development and subsequent relationships. In an interesting review of the childhood experiences of both Freud and Klein, Prophecy Coles suggests that there are reasons to believe that their surprising neglect of sibling experiences, and its impact on later life, may be a further example of theory reflecting autobiography. This book represents a challenge to all of us, to take fuller account of the effects of sibling relationships, the positives in these as well as the rivalry, and to notice the evidence and impact of sibling transference in our clinical work.' - Patrick Casement'This book demonstrates the richness of sibling relations, which Freud, and analysts subsequently, have largely neglected in favour of the Oedipus complex. Adding literary, biographical and mythological sources to clinical material, Prophecy Coles finds a fascinating web of allusions and links. Sibling love support is such a subdued refrain in the psychoanalytic literature, it is timely to give it a fanfare and a wide-ranging critical appraisal. This book contributes to and demands that debate.' - Professor R. D. Hinshelwood'
