Alcoholism as a Developing Family Crisis.
Downs, William R.
Family Relations, v31 n1 p5-12 Jan 1982
Focuses on alcoholism in the husband/father. Disturbed personality and decompensation hypotheses were not supported by the data. Suggests systems theory alone is inadequate to conceptualize the inconsistency of the alcoholic, and his impact on the family. Proposes a combination of systems theory and Hill's (1949) crisis theory. (Author)
