This unit for American Indian girls 15 to 18 years old and for their parents is an attempt to create a better understanding of alcoholism. The narrative section focuses upon the following ideas: (1) what alcoholism is; (2) frequency of alcoholism; (3) physical effects; (4) the effect of alcoholism on the family; (5) causes of alcoholism; (6) signs of alcoholism; (7) understanding the alcoholic parent; and (8) teenage drinking. The activities section consists primarily of six case studies which should be useful in promoting discussion and in increasing understanding of the problem. There is a quiz entitled "Questions About Alcoholism." The leaders' guide provides the answers to the quiz, and also a series of sketches which can be used in discussing alcoholism. (Author/CM)
