Reframing Spirituality: AA, the 12 Steps, and the Mental Health Counselor.
Hanna, Fred J.
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v14 n2 p166-79 Apr 1992
Surveys literature and explores ways to understand spirituality in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Topics explored range from Jungian and Jamesian psychology, to Stoicism, the work of Bateson, and transpersonal psychology and therapy. Speculates that difficulty some mental health counselors have in accepting AA as therapy could be a result of unsophisticated terminology and counselors' lack of familiarity with relevant literature.
