Aspects of Family Structures in Alcoholic, Recovered, and Nonalcoholic Families.
Preli, Rona; Protinsky, Howard
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v14 n3 p311-14 Jul 1988
Examined whether families with alcoholic (N=39), recovered alcoholic (N=44), or only nonalcoholic members (N=42) differed on structural variables of cross-generational coalitions and hierarchy reversals. Results showed disproportionate number of reversals in alcoholic families: hierarchical reversals in 23 alcoholic families compared to 6 recovered families and 1 nonalcoholic family. Findings provide some support to structural theory of family organization. (NB)
