At least fifteen million American children of school age have severe problems that are caused or exacerbated by a parent’s alcoholism. This book draws on the experience of a nationally respected model program to show how these children can be helped. Part 1 focuses on an understanding of what alcoholism is and is not, and its impact on family members. Part 2 presents scenarios of persons helping in their various roles, examines important support agencies, and explains how and why their methods work.
“I recommend the book to anyone with an interest in the treatment and prevention of alcoholism.”
—American Journal of Nursing
“This book is an invaluable resource for those working with children in a professional capacity.”—Social Work in Health Care
