"Chemically Dependent Women and Sexuality" is a review of the literature documenting the relationship between alcoholism and various aspects of women's sexuality. "Sex and Alcohol: What Do Women Tell Us?" discusses the relationship between sex and alcohol in women's lives, focusing on acquainting counselors with women's issues and on the importance of dealing with these issues in alcoholism treatment programs. "Alcohol and Family Violence" explores gender differences between the victims and perpetrators of violence in relation to alcohol consumption and dependence, offering a theoretical analysis of the differences found.
