Families of Incarcerated Male Alcohol and Drug Offenders: A Multisystemic Study
O'Connell, William P.
Journal of Family Social Work, v9 n2 p1-23 2005
There has been little empirical research regarding the needs of family members of incarcerated male alcohol and drug offenders. This study surveyed the perceptions of eighty-five family members using FACES II, Quality of Life, and Quality of Counseling Services instruments. Statistically significant results yielded a relationship between significant others with a low quality of life and an interest in counseling services. The findings from this exploratory study, coupled with previous research linking the needs of family members to the quality of interaction with the multiple systems in which they interact, substantiate the value of counseling interventions for significant others and other family members related to offenders.
