Counselling Problem Drinkers: The Realm of Specialists, Alcoholics Anonymous or Generic Counsellors?
Wheeler, Sue; Turner, Linda
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v25 n3 p313-26 Aug 1997
Investigated counselors' (N=94) attitudes in working with people with drinking problems and their opinions of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Results indicate that generic counselors did not feel competent working with these clients; feelings of competence increased with greater experience of the client group. Counselors knew of AA but understood little of the 12-step program. (RJM)
