Lecture Description

David Schoen draws from the famous correspondence between AA co-founder Bill Wilson and Carl Jung, which shows how Jung’s psychology forms a cornerstone of AA and recovery.

Schoen describes the development and nature of a typical addiction, the archetypal shadow in the addiction process, and why the principles of AA are such an effective treatment approach in addressing addiction.
