Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a 2 million member international mutual aid fellowship to help members achieve and maintain sobriety. While studies of AA’s efficacy have produced inconsistent results, it is undeniable that Alcoholics Anonymous has had a significant and long term effect on American and international culture.

Jung’s influence on the founding of AA is not widely known; his influence is interesting for two main reasons. First, it is rare that a failed clinical intervention has such an impact on the world. Next, it suggests that we need to be widely interdisciplinary in our understanding of health & wellness.

This thesis will be expanded & explored during the presentation.

*Some learning objectives to be met at the end of each seminar

1)    To understand C. G. Jung’s Influence on the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous.

2)    To trace this influence from Jung’s unsuccessful clinical case through other non-clinical experiences to this case’s ultimate influence on the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous.

3)    To understand the value of interdisciplinary approaches to clinical cases such as substance abuse.
