This content analysis of 24 studies explored how children and families are affected by alcohol abuse. It examined the training child welfare workers receive about alcohol/substance abuse and social work education on this topic. In addition, practice interventions were analyzed.
A finding of this study was that there was less than optimal documented substance abuse content and evaluation in child welfare training and social work education. This finding is alarming since alcohol abuse has profound negative effects on children. Many children come to the attention of child welfare agencies because of parental substance abuse. Promising practice interventions for children and families affected by alcohol abuse are documented. Recommendations for future research, practice, and policies on parental alcohol abuse are presented.
