van Wormer, Katherine
Journal of Family Social Work, v11 n2 p202-221 Jul 2008
This article adapts the stages of change model, a model in which specific interventions of harm reduction are directed toward the client's readiness for treatment, as a guiding framework for counseling family members of alcoholics/addicts. Interventions at each stage of the family's readiness for change, from precontemplation to action, are described. (Contains 1 table.)
