Very good insights by the author unique to alcoholism
Very good insights into the damaging effects of problem drinking in families both past down directly from problem drinking within the current family and past down through behaviours and emotional abuse from a generation before .
Also draws a lot on the role of trauma and how that is acted out within relationships and families in destructive ways

I loved it
I found this book not only helpful but enjoyable! Great content and great narration. Also, this book can help a wide range of people, not just ACOA's.

Excellent Update for a Timeless Topic
What made the experience of listening to ACOA Trauma Syndrome the most enjoyable?
I do not have time to sit and read a book. I do have time to listen to one so this was the perfect version for me.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The whole book is a great read. You will find one section that provides updated content especially worthy of your attention. A contemporary review of existing medications and uses which may be pertinent for the reader (or you, or your client; wink wink). I was pleasantly surprised with these updates (Part II, Neurobiology of the ACOA Syndrome).
What does Elizabeth Hanley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narration provides a great backdrop for the content; inflection, tone, pacing etc. all bring the words on the page to life. Nice narration.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
YES, and I did.
Any additional comments?
This topic has had thorough review over the years, but many texts are lacking in depth of content. I found this book offering detailed content superior to most of the 'pop-psych' books similar in the '90s (when the concept became more popularized). The historical texts I have found with great content for this topic ----- On the Family - John Bradshaw ----- It will Never Happen to Me.... Claudia Black ----- Struggle for Intimacy - Janet Geringer Woititz ----- Most others over the years I have found..... less robust. This book is well worth your time!
