Event Description

Platform™, Depth Psychology Alliance™, and Shrink Rap Radio™ have joined forces for the 2013 January online book club.

Join us for free access to an interview with the author, four weekly hour-long teleseminars, a written discussion forum here in the Book Club & more. Plus--supplement this material with an audio presentation by David Schoen from Jung Platform

The January 2013 selection is The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. , Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil by David E. Schoen, based on the correspondence between W., one of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and C.G. , 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.

This month's book club includes both the regular online written discussion forum (join anytime!) PLUS a free 4-week teleseminar series which  runs each Wednesday in January at 5pm PT through 1/30.

Dates: Weds: January 9, 16, 23, 30 - PLEASE RSVP HERE on the teleseminar event 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.
