Abstract

In the reported process of marital therapy alcohol dependence was found to be a symptom "wandering" from generation to generation and fulfilling certain functions. The authors emphasize the role of transgenerational transmission of alcohol abuse as a pattern of coping with personality problems and developmental crises occurring in the family life cycle.
