Example text

G. Jung replaced Dr. Schweizer and I trained to become an analyst. During the years of training I was often struck by the similarities and parallels between the individual approach of Jungian analysis and the collective approach of Alcoholics Anonymous. Eventually it became a goal to somehow bring the two together in one work, showing how they could mutually support and complement each other in attempts to come to grips with the problem of alcoholism. This book is a product of that effort. As for the particular focus on alcoholism in women, that comes from a combination of feminist tendencies and observations over the years about alcoholics of both sexes.

Certainly the main reasons have to do with the deep social changes in traditional feminine and masculine roles. Until recently, although they were considered unequal and different, women at least had a subculture in which to evolve. In this maternal, female world, where feminine values prevailed, there was little opportunity for a sense of individual selfhood and autonomy, but at least it did provide a sense of collective gender solidarity and identity. Women could remain in that paradise in a more or less unconscious state, and men were happy to stay outside in the "real" world.
