Dawn Farm Education Series: Recovery and Spiritual Change

March 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Many people believe that changes in one’s spirituality/religiousness support recovery. This presentation will look at the results of research with 364 alcoholics over three years, including changes in alcohol use (sobriety), Alcoholics Anonymous involvement, several dimensions of spirituality and religiousness (including beliefs, prayer and meditation, purpose in life, and forgiveness,)  and how they relate to each other.

Dr. Robinson recently retired from the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry, where she was a Research Assistant Professor, studying the role of spiritual and religious change in recovery from alcoholism. She has carried out three surveys of alcoholics examining this question. The most extensive study was a survey of 364 alcoholics who were interviewed every 6 months for 3 years. This work was funded by the NIAAA (National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse), part of the National Institute of Health. She was also an NIAAA post-doctoral fellow at the U of M Addiction Research Center and prior to that was on the social work faculty at Case Western Reserve University and the University at Buffalo. Dr. Robinson has an MSW and a Ph.D. in Psychology and Social Work from the University of Michigan.
