Overview Many people across the world suffer from alcoholism, a family disease. It is called a family disease because the addiction harms the alcoholic, and everyone who has to live with them. Children consistently suffer when they share a house with an alcoholic. Unfortunately, alcoholism is common and many children find themselves in this situation. The emotional and psychological scars that children can develop in alcoholic homes can be so deep that they can last well into adulthood. Youth who grew up in an alcoholic home can develop similar personality traits and characteristics. Approximately 26.8 million children are exposed to alcoholism in the family and 6.6 million children 18 and younger live in households with at least one alcoholic

In 1996, Effective Intervention: Effective intervention is an essential step to reduce Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. An intervention that seems to reduce not only, alcohol exposed during pregnancy but also the use of ineffective birth control (for those women drinking and not planning to get pregnant) is the project CHOICE (Floyd, et al., 2007). The program consists motivational interviewing counseling sessions and information. To test the effectiveness of the program of the counseling sessions a randomized controlled trial was created. Those in control received only received information about alcohol-exposed pregnancies while the intervention group received the information plus counseling sessions. Results showed that brief motivational counseling sessions decreased the risk of AEP in high-risk women. These women changed their target behavior of drinking and ineffective contraception use. A similar adaption of project CHOICE was conducted and showed that 74 percent of the intervention women and 54 percent of the control women were no longer at risk for AEP (Ingersoll et al., 2005). However, although the use of educational awareness and counseling seem to be an effective solution to reduce Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. We should consider using peers during the contact part of the intervention to have higher long term outcomes. Having a person with lived
In the United States, twenty million children are experiencing physical, verbal and emotional abuse from parents who are addicted to alcohol. Growing up in an alcoholic house can leave emotional scars that may last a lifetime. This is tragic because we consider that childhood is the foundation on

The environment for these girls was that Megan had a mother that her mother is a heroin addict and is herself often in and out of jail on prostitution charges. Megan had to stay with her grandmother, but she did not want Megan, so she put her in foster care. All Megan saw when she was growing was that no one loved her because her mom was in jail, and her own grandmother sent her to foster care. Megan got mixed with the crew and started doing drugs just like her mother so that they are closer. At the end Megan has been in 11 foster houses by the age of 16. All of this had a big impact on Megan because that the age 16 she already been in and out of foster homes, but none of them gave the love that she needed at that age. All of this made her

Results of this similar study by Toumbourou and Gregg (2002) demonstrate that “substance use was significantly reduced for students” (p. 281). In addition, these same adolescents reported higher levels of maternal care after the intervention than they had before; that is, being in a school where an intervention took place “almost doubled the odds of high maternal care” (Toumbourou & Gregg, 2002, p. 282). In this study, maternal care was associated with the attenuation of substance use (Toumbourou & Gregg, 2002). Further, there was a “high level of adherence to the PACE curriculum” (Toumbourou & Gregg, 2002, p. 279), indicating that caregivers of Glenville students will likely follow our program and show success in bettering their parenting skills and behaviors, as well as their relationships with their

Alternative Treatment of Children with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure Malene B. Bonnor Valencia Community College Author Note This paper was prepared for PSY2012, CRN: 14478, Taught by Professor Oses Abstract Children that have been prenatally exposed to alcohol can suffer from a variety of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorders (FASD), FASD is a large term that includes many different disorders as an effect of prenatal alcohol exposure. Fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS is one of the many diagnoses that are in that category, with symptoms like growth deficiency and damage to the central nervous system it makes it a lifelong mental disorder that makes it very difficult for the children to live a normal life. According to data and statistic from May 2014 made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) an approximation of the rate of children born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is between 0.2 to 1.5 cases per 1000 live births. Which makes Prenatal Alcohol Exposure a common issue in the US. In this paper I have chosen to use an article about possible treatments of children with prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) through a program called Children’s Friendship Training (CFT) compared to another treatment plan called Standard of Care (SOC). O 'Connor, M. J., Laugeson, E. A., Mogil, C., Lowe, E., Welch-Torres, K., Keil, V., & Paley, B. (2012). In the article they state that children born with PAE have major social skills deficits. These children are commonly treated in
When families need child care for their children, it is important they get the child care that they need. Children who have spent more time in a child care have results from their experience. They will more likely show results including better math and reading scores, and social skills as well.

The family strategy basically involves the parents and other family members creating a good relationship with the adolescents under their care. The parents and guardians should be good role models to their children in terms of their alcohol related behavior (Bonnie and O’Connell 19). For example, if a parent is an alcoholic, the child is bound to get the wrong picture about the parent and eventually get into alcohol in later stages of life as they argue that, alcohol is not bad since their parents also drink. Good rapport between parents and adolescents is vital as it sets a foundation
