This second chapter in "The Challenge of Counseling in Middle Schools" presents four articles that deal with family relationships in early adolescence. "Teen-Parent Relationship Enrichment Through Choice Awareness," by Richard Nelson and Marsha Link, describes a process through which counselors may help to enrich relationships between teenagers and their parents. Choice Awareness is discussed, a Choice Awareness workshop process for enriching teenager-parent relationships is described, and outcomes of an experience with the workshop process are reported on a case-by-case basis. "Support Group for Children of Divorce: A Family Life Enrichment Group Model," by Nancy Moore and Margaret Sumner, discusses how social workers from the private, non-profit sector can cooperate with school professionals to serve the concerns of the child whose parents are divorcing. "Substance Abuse and the Family," by John Murphy, views substance abuse as a family disease for which the entire family must receive treatment if the problem is to be treated and reversed. "A Theoretical Rationale for Cross-Cultural Family Counseling," by Miguel Arciniega and Betty Newlon, poses axioms of behavior from Adlerian theory applied to minority families. (NB)
