From Al-Anon to ACOA: Codependence and the Reconstruction of Caregiving.
Haaken, Janice
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, v18 n2 p321-45 Win 1993
Analysis of Al-Anon and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) organizational literature shows women's articulation of and responses to the problems of codependence from the 1950s to the 1980s. Progressive appropriation of feminist ideals, a critique of the family, and a disease-based model of family dysfunction characterize understanding of codependence. (JB)
