Poradzić sobie z przeszłością - historie życia dorosłych dzieci alkoholików
How to cope with the past – the life stories of adult children of alcoholics
Languages of publication
Children in alcoholic families are exposed to destructive patterns of behaviour. To adapt to difficult situations and survive, they play various roles. However, these roles, when transferred into adulthood, act against them. Adult children of alcoholics live with the stigma of co-dependency rooted in childhood. The subjects of the research whose results I present in this article were retrospectively told life stories of the adult children of alcoholics (ACA). I was interested in various aspects of their childhood memories and, above all, in the strategies they chose for dealing with the past. I applied a biographical interview with elements of self-narration to collect data.
