Author Bio:
MICHAEL ROHRBAUGH, Ph.D.- Dr. Michael Rohrbaugh is professor of psychology and family studies at the University of Arizona. His professional experience with substance abuse dates to the mid nineteen-seventies, when he co-directed a drug and alcohol treatment program for Vietnam era servicemen.  His current research focuses on family assessment and intervention. With his wife and collaborator, Varda Shoham, he has studied the role of couple and family interaction in maintaining alcohol abuse and has developed a couple-based treatment approach that incorporates systemic principles and practices.
