NEEDS OF STUDENTS WITH AN ALCOHOL PROBLEM IN THEIR FAMILY.
WEIR, WILLIAM R.
A VOLUNTARY COUNSELING PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS IN FAMILIES WITH AN ALCOHOL PROBLEM WAS INSTITUTED AS PART OF THE OVER-ALL ALCOHOL EDUCATION PROGRAM IN THE SCHOOL. TO DETERMINE THE NEEDS OF THE PROGRAM, A STUDY WAS DONE COMPARING 317 STUDENTS WITH 65 STUDENTS DISPLAYING AN ALCOHOLIC PROBLEM IN THEIR FAMILY. THE STUDY CONCLUDED THAT BIOGRAPHICAL DATA SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN DEVELOPING A PROGRAM OF ALCOHOL EDUCATION. ALTHOUGH RESPONSES TO PERSONALITY INVENTORIES, SEMANTIC DIFFERENTIAL SCALES, AND ATTITUDINAL SCALES DISPLAYED SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN RELATION TO STUDENT INVOLVEMENT IN A FAMILY ALCOHOL PROBLEM, THE RETENTION OF ALCOHOL INFORMATION WAS NOT RELATED SIGNIFICANTLY TO INVOLVEMENT WITH THE PROBLEM. COUNSELING SESSIONS ALLOWED STUDENT TO FREELY EXPRESS THEIR NEEDS AND FEELINGS BY USE OF EITHER A DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH OR PROBLEM CENTERED APPROACH. THE COUNSELORS PRESENTED GENUINENESS, UNPOSSESSIVE WARMTH, AND EMPATHY. BOTH THE OBJECTIVE DATA AND A SUBJECTIVE EVALUATION INDICATED THAT THE COUNSELING PROGRAM WAS A VERY IMPORTANT PHASE OF THE OVER-ALL ALCOHOL EDUCATION PROGRAM. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (DETROIT, APRIL 1968). (CG)
