Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Many adults who experience the trauma of growing up in an alcoholic family system develop a condition of similar symptoms and behaviors, called the Adult Children of Alcoholics Syndrome (Kritzberg, 1985). It is estimated that over half of the twenty-eight to thirty-four million children of alcoholics are adults (Black, 1981). Cermak ( 1985), Bowden and Gravitz (1984) noted that although children of alcoholics compromise one of the largest identifiable groups in America, recognition of the issues these individuals face has been very recent.
