The Rise and Development of the Adult Children of Alcoholics Movement Merging Three Theoretical Perspectives by David R Rudy( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drinking behavior, from abstinence to alcoholism, has been explored from a wide range of intellectual positions, academic disciplines, and ideological stances. The Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOAs) movement is probably the most rapidly expanding enterprise in the alcoholism arena. Social movement theory seeks to describe, explain, and understand how social movements originate and develop. The focus from the Collective Behavior Theory stance is that persons (ACOAs) came to identify and articulate a need. The identification and sharing of this need along with the social organization that pursued resolutions to the need are the essential features of social movements in their formative stages. From the Resource Mobilization Theory perspective, society is characterized by conflicts of interest that are tied to various institutionalized power relations throughout the social structure. The ACOA Movement can be seen in this light as the manifestation of the efforts of clinicians and others to address what they saw as a population in need of treatment resources and programs. Both approaches can be combined and more broadly cast under a supply-and-demand model drawn from rational choice theory. An examination using the market ideas of supply and demand illuminates the ACOA Movement. The supply-and-demand model could be profitably extended to studying a number of other social movements.
