MARTIN, Eduardo  e  MARQUEZ, Laura. The role of siblings in goal achievement in residential child care programs. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1, pp.27-32. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.psi.2014.11.002.

Within the child welfare system, when groups of siblings are placed in residential care it is recommended to keep them together. The goal of this work is to verify whether keeping groups of siblings together in residential care is beneficial. The sample was made up of 167 children and adolescents who lived in supervised homes; 105 (62.9%) were with siblings and 62 (37.1%) were alone. We analyzed the evolution of their scores on the monthly goal observation scale of the SERAR (Del Valle & Bravo, 2007). The results indicate that, in general, children who are with their siblings obtain more benefits than children who are alone, especially in the dimensions of the residential setting. Nevertheless, when stays are too long, social interaction within the residence worsens in the groups of siblings. These results are discussed with regard to prior research and its practical implications.
