Event Type: 4-week free teleseminar series
Organized By: Depth Psychology Alliance, Jung Platform, Shrink Rap Radio, David Schoen
Latest Activity: Jan 30, 2013
Join Jungian analyst and January Book Club author David E. Schoen for a 4-week free teleseminar series based on his book, "The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. , Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil" based on the correspondence between Bill W., one of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and C.G. Jung.
David Schoen's work proposes an original, groundbreaking, psychodynamic view of addiction which explains both the creation and successful treatment of alcoholism and other addictions.
Using insights from ian psychology, it demonstrates why the 12 steps of AA really work. It emphasizes the crucial process of neutralizing the Archetypal Shadow / Archetypal Evil, an aspect of all true addictions, and explores this concept extensively through theoretical and clinical material, modern and ancient myths, and fairy tales.
The significance of using dreams for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of addiction is also explained. This book bridges the longstanding gap between the mental health community and 12-step recovering communities and translates concepts necessary to understanding the addictive process in ways that encourage mutual understanding and benefit.
These weekly hour-long teleseminars start WEDNESDAY, January 9 at 5pm PT/ 8pm ET and run each Wednesday through January 30.
Dates: Wednesdays: January 9, 16, 23, 30 - PLEASE RSVP HERE on this page (by clicking the RSVP button on the upper right) if you plan to attend so we know how many spots to reserve on the phone lines.
There is also a written discussion forum here on the Alliance in the Book Club where participants can discuss the book and teleseminars at their convenience
