Working with Children of Alcoholics: The Practitioner′s Handbook

About the eBook

Working with Children of Alcoholics was originally published when the plight of children of alcoholics was just beginning to gain widespread public attention. It was the first book to provide professionals with a direct, step-by-step approach that shows them not only what to look for when working with children but what they can do to help them. Some of the critical topics covered include identifying children of alcoholics, establishing effective childrenÆs programs, treatment strategies for children of alcoholics, life and survival in an alcoholic home, the intergenerational transmission of alcoholism, the psychological adjustment of children of alcoholics, health and safety hazards, and academic and behavioral concerns. Working with Children of Alcoholics includes extensive resources such as names of helpful organizations, periodicals, therapeutic games, and curriculum materials. The book will be of interest to social workers, public health workers, psychologists, school administrators, drug and alcohol counselors, pastoral counselors, teachers, and treatment centers. It makes an excellent supplemental text for graduate and undergraduate courses in family and community, adjustment problems of children and youth, substance abuse, human services and community problems.
