  2. 2. Supervisors: Understanding AlcoholismSupervisors: Understanding Alcoholism When considering the definition of alcoholism, many people focus on the symptoms that they do not have more than the ones they do have. Unlike cancer, where any symptom would cause alarm, symptoms of alcoholism often get ignored if other symptoms can be shown to not exist. This process is sometimes called “comparing out” of the definition, and it is a natural part of denial. Not me ! Not me ! Not me!Not me! “No problem!” Not me !Not me ! ““I neverI never drink at work!”drink at work!”I only drink Beer! 30 Slides: 2 30 Slides: 230 Slides: 2 WorkExcel.net/dot-training.html
  3. 3. Supervisors: Understanding AlcoholismSupervisors: Understanding Alcoholism • Alcoholics usually maintain a definition of alcoholism that serves to exclude them. • Alcoholics usually focus on symptoms of addiction that they do not have and use this information to avoid their self-diagnosis. • Alcoholics then change their definition over time to exclude symptoms that they begin to experience. Never had a DUI! Here’s one way of understanding denial. I Never Drank I Never Drank on the Job! on the Job! An AlcoholicAn Alcoholic is______!is______! 30 Slides: 330 Slides: 330 Slides: 3 WorkExcel.net/dot-training.html
  4. 4. Supervisors: Understanding AlcoholismSupervisors: Understanding Alcoholism Although in denial, most people with alcoholism have some awareness, however slight, that there is a connection between problems in their lives and drinking. This makes it possible to conduct an assessment with an alcoholic and often motivate them to accept help through accurate and convincing information about the disease that challenges their long-held misconceptions. 30 Slides: 430 Slides: 430 Slides: 4 WorkExcel.net/dot-training.html
  5. 5. Supervisors: Understanding AlcoholismSupervisors: Understanding Alcoholism Have you heard or used the term “functional alcoholic”? This is a common expression that enables alcoholic denial by putting the focus on behavior rather than the disease. Often used by friends or coworkers, it serves to dismiss the severity of the diagnosis. There is no such thing as functional cancer, and there is no such thing as functional alcoholism. 30 Slides: 530 Slides: 530 Slides: 5 WorkExcel.net/dot-training.html
