S8 E7 The One About Addiction Recovery and Spirituality


I am so greatful that Dr. Wendy Dossett has agreed to come back on the podcast to talk about something she is deeply passionate and deeply knowledgable about, both from her own experience and her own research.

Please note this could be quite triggering from some people so please listen with caution.

Here is a website Wendy recommends if you might find it useful.

We look at what addiction is, what it has to do with spirituality and why might spirituality in recovery from addiction be of interest to RE teachers and students.

We explore the history of alcoholics anonymous and consider the idea of higher power

We look at other faith-based, and secular approaches to recovery, particularly Buddhism.

If you want to catch the BBC programme AA that featured Wendy I HIGHLY recommend it. Here is the link
