Crandell J S: Brief treatment for adult children of alcoholics: Accessing resources for self-care.
Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training 26(4): 510-513, 1989.
Abstract: The case of a 57-year-old female adult child of an alcoholic (ACA) illustrates that brief treatment may be all that is necessary to help many ACAs who possess the requisites for effective self-care but who have been blocked from using them. The case shows how therapy can find a way around the inhibition of the resource of self-care by mobilizing existing internal resources so that emotional needs can be responded to in the self. In this case, the techniques of accessing resources and anchoring were drawn from neurolinguistic programming. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
