Jefferson Singer – Addiction According to Meaning Therapists (2 of 5)

In part 2 of addiction according to meaning therapists, Geoff Thompson discusses the work of addiction expert Dr. Jefferson Singer, author of Message in a Bottle: Stories of Men and Addiction . Dr. Singer believes that stories that we formulate about ourselves form our identity. Dr. Singer worked with relapsing clients at a facility called Lebanon Pines. In Dr. Singer’s research on men with addiction, a common thread that the stories shared by the clients he worked with reflected (a) a feeling of not fitting in with society and (b) an apparent lack of a cohesive sense of identity.
