Presentation at Annual Convention

Event: American Psychological Association’s Annual Conference

Event Date: August 6, 2017

Location: Washington, DC

Dr. David Gage presented a talk entitled “Siblings in Conflict: Tied at the Hip in the Family Business” at the world’s largest annual conference of psychologists.

As “Accidental Partners,” they may experience role confusion, sibling rivalry, fairness battles, and conflicting levels of ambition, competency and motivation. Their sibling challenges become challenges for the entire family, including their parents and their children.
