Treatment Factors in Alcoholic Populations by Melvin L Selzer( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes an attempt to ascertain differences between an alcoholic and a non-alcoholic group of males. The author feels that as long as the characteristics and needs of alcoholics are not understood treatment programs will continue simplistic ineffective and even harmful. The study compares the profiles of alcoholics and non-alcoholics on a specifically developed questionnaire which yielded information on demographic data, defensiveness, motivations for smoking, coping styles, effects of drinking, self esteem, depression, aggression, death wishes, and paranoid thinking. The study indicates that drinking for alcoholics is both comforting and troublesome; that alcoholism is linked with depression in one-third of the sample; and that low self esteem characteristics the alcoholic group. The author also finds variation within the alcoholic population, and stresses the need for treatment programs to be planned responsively to meet the various needs of alcoholics. (Ng)

A self-administered questionnaire was used to compare selected driving, personality, and psychosocial variables of 306 convicted male drunk drivers with those of 289 alcoholics and 269 controls.

While some 40% of the drunk drivers appeared to be alcoholics, they showed significantly less psychosocial incapacity than the alcoholic comparison group. Conversely, the non-alcoholics in the drunk driver group appeared significantly more maladjusted than the control group. (Author)
