Book Description:

First book to use behavioral analysis to talk about Adult Children of Alcoholics

From the Back Cover:

Treating Adult Children of Alcoholics: A Behavioral Approach is the first book devoted entirely to a systematic behavioral analysis of the drinking and non-drinking offspring of alcoholic families. It combines current innovations in applied and experimental research with behavior therapy interventions proven effective with social skill training, and a variety of disorders including obsessive-compulsions, phobias, and addictions. Chapters highlight methods of assessment and short-term therapy for related emotional disorders such as shame, guilt, excessive caretaking, and post-traumatic childhood fears. Recovery-sabotage and family resistance chapters round out empirically valid steps to treat Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA). The treatment also facilitates prosocial behavior in work settings, friendships and marriage. Students and practitioners will discover they can clearly identify, measurably predict, and efficiently treat chronic clinical symptoms of ACOAs within a short time.
