"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
As family therapist Marlin indicates, although most adult children of alcoholics (ACOAs) do not identify their background as a source of trouble, the majority of their problems stem from having grown up in alcoholic households. Marlin's strategies for recovery involve breaking through denial; exploring the tasks involved in recovery, e.g., forgiveness; and rebuilding parent and sibling relationships in order to intervene in the family member's alcoholism. This comprehensive look at growing up in a dysfunctional family emphasizes that survival is not enough. Interesting and readable; an excellent self-help or source book. Barbara J. Powell, Veterans Administration Medical Ctr., Kansas City, Mo.
