There are often common characteristics within families when a parental figure abuses alcohol or other drugs. The child from an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional family often develops survival coping skills to navigate inconsistent messages and stressors. The adult child may leave their home or situation thinking they are no longer impacted by their childhood circumstances, but the buried emotional pain, anxiety, or unhealthy patterns of relating to others may reappear in adulthood. This presentation will provide information on 14 common traits, family roles, and how this might manifest in an adult (student). Resources for support will also be provided.
