Occupational Factors in Alcoholism

  • Paul C. Whitehead
  • Jan Simpkins


The relationship between occupations and alcoholism received considerable attention during the 1970s, mainly because of the ascendancy of the idea that the potentially most favorable intervention with the problem drinker could take place through identification in the workplace. This idea is not a direct concern of this chapter. Rather, we are interested in the role of occupations in the psychosocial pathogenesis of alcoholism. Occupational roles are a dominant force in many aspects of social life in Western societies as well as in other societies. To the extent that this force is associated with a number of social concerns ranging from population dynamics and rates of divorce to rates of suicide and other forms of self-destructive behavior, understanding its role in the etiology of social problems is important and useful.
