♥ Book Title : The Twelve Steps Of Alcoholics Anonymous
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book brings together a series of short discussions from various authors who interpret the Twelve Steps. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous form the cornerstone of one of the most effective programs for recovery from alcoholism. The steps have also been successfully adapted for use in the treatment of many other dependencies. This book brings together for the first time a series of short discussions that interpret each of the Twelve Steps--from the admission of individual powerlessness over alcohol that occurs in Step One, to the moral inventory of Step Four and the spiritual awakening of Step Twelve.Each discussion has a separate author, demonstrating the diversity of voices that is at the heart of AA, and each author provides insights that keep the steps fresh and meaningful, whether they've been read once or a hundred times."Article| Anonymous| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Carl Jung and Alcoholics Anonymous
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Show me a drunk and I'll show you someone in search of God", is a saying that could be derived from Carl Jung. Jung wrote to Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), about his understanding of Rowland Hazard's alcoholism: "His craving for alcohol was the equivalent, on a low level, of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness, expressed in medieval language: the union with God". .The author visited the archives of the headquarters of A.A. in New York, and discovered new communications between Carl Jung and Bill Wilson. For the first time this correspondence shows Jung's respect for A.A. and in turn, its influence on him. In particular, this research shows how Bill Wilson was encouraged by Jung's writings to promote the spiritual aspect of recovery as opposed to the conventional medical model which has failed so abysmally.The book overturns the long-held belief that Jung distrusted groups. Indeed, influenced by A.A.'s success, Jung gave "complete and detailed instructions" on how the A.A. group format could be developed further and used by "general neurotics".Wilson was an advocate of treating some alcoholics with LSD in order to deflate the ego and induce a spiritual experience. He wrote to Jung for his comments on this controversial idea. Jung was stridently opposed to "short cuts", to transcendent experiences; however he died before he could reply to Wilson's comprehensive letter.The author explains how alcoholism can be diagnosed and understood by professionals and the lay person; by examining the detailed case histories of Jung, the author gives graphic examples of its psychological and behavioural manifestations.By combining the narratives of recovering alcoholics with a Jungian perspective, the author explains how the program of the 12 steps can lead to a journey of spiritual awakening or in Jungian terms, individuation. This book explains in plain words the language of A.A. and takes the reader inside a meeting to show how it works in practice.The final chapter deals with the criticism that both organisations have "cultish" aspects."Article| Ian McCabe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery
☯ Full Synopsis : "It was once taken for granted that peer-assisted groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous had no “real” value in recovery from addiction. More recently, evidence-based medicine is recognizing a spiritual component in healing—especially when it comes to addiction. The newest edition of Recent Developments in Alcoholism reflects this change by focusing on the 12-step model of recovery as well as mindfulness meditation and other spiritually oriented activity. More than thirty contributors bring together historical background, research findings, and clinical wisdom to analyze the compatibility of professional treatment and nonprofessional support, day-to-day concepts of relapse prevention, the value of community building in recovery, and much more. Among the topics covered: (1) How and why 12-step groups work. (2) The impact of the spiritual on mainstream treatment. (3) The impact of AA on other nonprofessional recovery programs. (4) AA outcomes for special populations. (5) Facilitating involvement in 12-step programs. (6) Methods for measuring religiousness and spirituality in alcohol research. Whether one is referring clients to 12-step programs or seeking to better understand the process, this is a unique resource for clinicians and social workers. Developmental psychologists, too, will find Volume 18—Research on Alcoholics Anonymous and Spirituality in Addiction Recovery a worthy successor to the series."Article| Marc Galanter, Lee Anne Kaskutas| Statement ..."
