Last month The Current  spoke to psychology professor Dieter Wolke from Warwick University in England, about a subject he wishes the world would be more open about —sibling bullying.

 After studying sibling relationships for decades, his latest study shows sibling bullying leaves scars that last into adulthood.

The Current was moved by the outpouring of audience feedback and testimonials on this topic, and wanted to discuss in depth some of the harrowing stories shared with us. 

In this segment, Anna Maria Tremonti hosts a panel discussion on sibling bullying and its lasting effects. 

The segment was produced by The Current's Anne Penman
