This quarterly publication, issued by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), contains articles dealing with family violence and alcohol abuse, children of alcoholic parents, training programs for counselors, and confidentiality of client records. The three articles on alcohol abuse suggest that: (1) there is a clear association between alcoholism and all kinds of domestic violence such as wife battering, child abuse, and incest; (2) many abuse victims are "silent" victims until threat of serious injury or death appears imminent; and (3) social services and the criminal justice system are beginning to develop programs involving hotlines, emergency shelters, and crisis centers to help with these problems. Other articles focus on the provision of services for all children of alcoholics, not just those who exhibit behavioral problems, a program model for training counselors to handle referrals to child protective services, and policy issues related to federal regulations governing confidentiality of patient records and child abuse/neglect reports. A partial listing of family violence agencies is also provided. (HLM)
