Abstract/Summary

The process of adjustment experienced by the siblings as they transition into a blended family setting is crucial to the development of the new family as these may generate developmental changes among the children, whether emotional or behavioral. While there has been an increase in the number of blended families in the Philippines, the literature on siblings belonging to these families are minimal, and remain to be understudied. The researchers aim to describe the adjustment experiences of siblings within blended families. The participants were 10 individuals from different blended families who have been merged for at least a year. Data collection was executed by conducting semi-structured interviews. The researchers used thematic analysis to find common themes that describe the experiences of adjustment in blended families. The data gathered showed main category: the phases of adjustment, which included the themes about early, middle, and later phases of the adjustment process.
