An Educational Strategy to Impact the Children of Alcoholic Parents: A Feasibility Report.
Cramer, Patrice A.
The potential for helping children of alcoholic parents to understand and to cope with the problems they experience was examined. Areas were explored in which supportive services may be provided to children of alcoholic parents. It was concluded that the school staff who have close, continuous contact would be the best and most accessible caregiving team. This staff includes the teacher, counselor, nurse, and social worker. The following topics are discussed: (1) the nature of the school setting as a caregiving agency; (2) the roles of each school staff member; (3) techniques to identify children of alcoholic parents; and (4) suggested education and training objectives. Recommendations on implementing a school based project are made, with emphasis on the crucial junior high school years. A bibliography is appended. (JD)
