The 4th International Symposium of the Psychiatric Research Institute of Tokyo brought together clinicians and scientists from around the world to present their work in the highly complex area of alcoholism and the family. Culled from the symposium, the papers that appear here underscore both the level of sophistication that alcoholism-related research has achieved over the last several decades and the diversity of perspectives apparent on any given component. Divided into 5 parts - Genetic Factors of Alcoholism, Clinical Aspects, Alcoholic Families and Mental Health, Alcoholism and Family Models and Therapeutic Approaches to the Alcoholic Family - the book provides a mix of often divergent views. There are some chapters that highlight biological aspects of the impact of alcoholism on family structure, whereas others demonstrate how cultural and related social factors influence the development and course of alcoholism and how the disorder changes interactions within the family.
