Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and Carl G. Jung
Lecture - Friday, March 10, 7:00 - 9:00 PM - Presented by Ruth Meyer, LCSW
Alcoholics Anonymous was birthed on June 10, 1935, by two hopeless drunks, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith. In the delivery room were three presences: Dr. William Silkworth, Dr. C. G. Jung, and the Oxford Groups. Each contributed to what would become the Twelve Steps.
In this lecture we will begin with a basic understanding of the 12 Steps. We will then delve into the synchronicity of the three influences on Wilson and Smith before the two men met each other. We will focus especially on C. G. Jung’s impact on Alcoholics Anonymous and his contribution to Step 2, “What is the solution?”
