Journal of Primary Prevention, v23 n1 p23-42 Fall 2002
Late adolescent children of alcoholics (COAs) were interviewed about their relationship with a natural mentor. Results showed that a typical mentor was a same-sex relative who had been responsible for initiating the mentor-like relationship. Differences in the reported adjustment of COAs with and without natural mentors are considered in light of prevention programming and its evaluation. (Contains 30 references and 6 tables.) (GCP)
