Removing Defects of Character

Defects of CharacterIn addition to a discussion of the Alcoholics Anonymous Sixth Step, Dr. Nuckols also explores other spiritually based systems.  He shows how not addressing these issues can lead to relapse and other self-defeating behaviors.  At the root of these defects are narcissistic beliefs about the self (I, me, mine) and a distorted self-image.

 

Defects of character respond poorly to psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy, and are more amenable to change utilizing spiritual tools such as humility, honesty, acceptance and surrender.  This workshop teaches clinicians how to assist clients in the removal of these defects, including pride, greed, jealousy and envy.  Understanding that “I am jealous and I will change” is an illusion and the fact change occurs in the “moment” is at the heart of this transformation.
