Throughout the world, millions of children grow up with parents who are dependent on or misuse alcohol and other substances.  Such children are found in every socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, and racial group, and in every setting ranging from preschools to community agencies to universities to mental health facilities.  Numerous research studies show that that these children are at greater risk for various problems, which vary depending on a number of factors, including the age of the child.  Because these children exhibit not only problematic behaviors but also strengths or resilience, careful individual assessment is warranted.  This course will examine the nature of substance use, misuse and addiction and its impact on the family, particularly young and adolescent children both in the USA and in Israel.  Assessment, treatment, policy and research issues will be explored.  This course will include a visit to an Israeli NGO working with this population and guest lecturers from Israel.
