Overview
If You Loved Me, You’d Stop! What You Really Need To Know When Your Loved One Drinks Too Much combines current brain research on alcoholism and alcohol abuse with Lisa Frederiksen’s 40 years experience in dealing with these family problems. By explaining this research from the perspective of someone who has personally survived the ravages of a loved one’s drinking, Ms. Frederiksen offers fresh hope for the more than 50 percent of Americans (and the one in four children) who have a family member with a drinking problem.
Description
If You Loved Me, You’d Stop! What You Really Need To Know When Your Loved One Drinks Too Much combines current brain research on alcoholism and alcohol abuse with Lisa Frederiksen’s 40 years experience in dealing with these family problems. By explaining this research from the perspective of someone who has personally survived the ravages of a loved one’s drinking, Ms. Frederiksen offers fresh hope for the more than 50 percent of Americans (and the one in four children) who have a family member with a drinking problem. This book addresses a host of issues surrounding alcoholism and alcohol abuse, including co-addictions, DUIs, underage drinking, dual diagnosis, codependency, and, importantly, the characteristics that distinguish alcoholism from alcohol abuse (excessive drinking). Frederiksen’s book targets those who know their loved one drinks too much and believe that if they can just get them to stop, life will return to normal.
About the author
In addition to this title, Lisa Frederiksen has published two other books in the area of substance abuse addictions/ alcoholism, including Loved One In Treatment? Now What! and Crossing The Line From Alcohol Use to Abuse to Dependence. Lisa Frederiksen's story goes beyond her 40 years experience with family alcoholism and alcohol abuse, however. She published six books under her previous last name, including Women's Rights and Nothing Less, the Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Freedom Cannot Rest, Ella Baker and the Civil Rights Movement; and Women's Work, the Story of Betty Friedan, as well as numerous articles on a wide-range of topics, including voting and empowerment, careers, workplace issues and public school financing. Frederiksen earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of California at Davis in 1975 and worked during the subsequent twenty-year period in executive management positions. In 1996, she started her own consulting business to companies and nonprofit groups while pursing a long-held dream of writing forpublication and speaking on the subjects of her work. She is a reviewed author and a previously nationally recognized speaker on women's history and lives in northern California.
