The purpose of this project was to examine, in narrative form, this writer's experience with paternal substance addiction and family violence. This narrative explores the experience of growing up with feelings of abandonment, guilt, and fear and how this writer coped and became resilient. These life experiences have led to this writer's ability to work with clients in an empathetic and empowering way. Literature about risk factors and protective factors for children with substance addicted parents was reviewed. Relevance to and implications for social work practice are discussed. This writer's experience in developing a personal narrative is also discussed.
