by du Bruyne, Rachel, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 102; 1472291
Abstract (Summary)

This curriculum was developed to provide the field of social work with a therapeutic and educational tool to implement with children of addicts (COAs). The purpose of this curriculum is to provide COAs with much needed support and education, with the hope of ameliorating some of the negative effects of parental substance abuse. The goals of this curriculum are to: provide a safe, supportive environment in which COAs can share with one another; improve participants' knowledge of substance abuse and recovery; assist participants in identifying skills that will help maintain their physical and emotional safety. To achieve these goals, a comprehensive curriculum was designed, consisting of various activities, handouts, discussion topics, and expressive activities to use with children suffering the effects of parental substance abuse.
