Those who attend the two-day training become first-generation Sibshop facilitators (as described in the Sibshop Standards of Practice) and, upon registration, may start a Sibshop in their community.

(Don't want to run a Sibshop, but would like to talk about sibs' unique issues? Join us just for the first day!)

As those who have attended will tell you, Sibshop trainings are rich events! In the course of two days, you’ll hear poignant stories, share laughs, meet courageous sibs, and learn practical advice.

A big part of any Sibshop training is the demonstration Sibshop, where you will participate in great Sibshop games and discussion activities with remarkably cool and thoughtful 8-13 year old brothers and sisters of kids with special needs.

These trainings and workshops are open to parents, adult sibs, and any service provider concerned about families. If you’d like to host a Sibshop training in your community, please write or call us at 206.297.6368. We’d be happy to help in any way we can.

You can always learn where we will be offering trainings and workshops in the days to come by visiting our homepage or online training calendar.
