ABSTRACT

The study was conducted on a sample of 120 adolescents with alcoholic and non- alcoholic fathers drawn equally from six rural locations in Ludhiana district. Data were collected using a Personal Information Sheet, a self- structured Interview Schedule and an Adjustment Inventory. The alcoholic fathers were perceived to be as having high abuse potential by the adolescents; however majority of the girls (73.33%) experienced low abuse compared to boys. Beating was the most predominantly used type of punishment by the fathers. Adolescents of non- alcoholic fathers showed better adjustment in different areas viz home, school, social and health adjustment.
