This study examines the order in which an individual is born and how, when examining birth order, does the psychological make- of the first, middle and last child born influence how the individual will be later in their life. This study was based on two premises: (1) In social work there is not a need to focus on birth order, classifying it solely as a matter of psychology; (2) When a child is born, they are given an order among their siblings that provides them with a set of experiences, roles, and responsibilities that attribute the child in the given birth order. A systematic review was used to analyze data gathered on the contributions of sibling relationships, and the psychological make-up of the first, middle and last born child, and how each can predict the resilience of the individual.
