Part one: addiction -- Part two: our feelings -- Part three: getting well.
"Children who grow up in addicted families usually learn at a very young age that it is not safe for them to openly talk about their family experiences. This updated and revised edition of My dad loves me, my dad has a disease gives children ages five to twelve the opportunity to work through their feelings of loss, loneliness, fear, and frustration, both verbally and through drawing exercises. Through sharing their thoughts and feelings, children can develop a better understanding of addiction and how it affects their parent(s). Written from a child's point of view, My dad loves me, me dad has a disease has been used to help thousands of children. It has become a springboard to help children from families ravaged by addiction to experience their own recovery process"--Back cover.
