Adult Children of Alcoholics and Struggle for Intimacyby Janet Geringer Woititz, Ruth Stokesberry
Alcoholism is a disease that affects not just the alcoholic, but all those around him. Many grow up believing stunted relationships are normal, so incorporate into their subsequent family behavior that virtually assures distrust, need to control and, of course, denial. Adult children of alcoholics thus frequently pass on to their children the legacy of their childhood. Until recently there seemed little hope the cycle could be broken.
Enter Janet Woititz, a pioneer in this area. First, she understands the problem and names it. Second, she points out other causes of deviant parental behavior that damage as effectively as alcoholism. And third, she illuminates symptoms in such a way that we can identify them in ourselves and work to solve the problem.
