Abstract

Results are presented of a pilot study on the response to a homogeneous program (task and psychoeducation-oriented therapeutic groups targeted on acquirement of new skills) in a group of alcohol dependent men (N=28) and women (N=35) treated on the inpatient basis. Obtained results indicate different extent and direction of behavior and personality change after the treatment in persons with different types of alcoholism according to the Cloninger typology. Among assessment tools used the Adjective Checklist (ACL-37) by Gough and Heilbrun turned out to have a particularly high discriminative power.
