Dr. Constance Scharff Discusses Her Award-Winning Poetry Collection Meeting God at Midnight
Podcast Episode 134 Release Date: March 2, 2018
On this podcast Dr. Connie Scharff courageously shares how she came to write her poetry series Meeting God at Midnight and how her poems served as therapeutic agents of change that helped her successfully reframe her addiction story so that she could achieve and maintain long term addiction recovery. Dr. Scharff discusses painful aspects of her childhood including incest and violence by her parents—overcoming the shame and guilt often associated with this still culturally taboo subject. Dr. Scharff demonstrates what it means to recover from severe alcohol addiction, having started drinking at age 11 as a form of self medication, in order to survive and bury her pain. Her individual poems tell a powerful story of how a young girl was able to survive and overcome deep sexual traumas and later blossom into a productive member of society despite the physical obstacles and emotional upheavals she faced. Dr. Scharff helps others recover worldwide from their addictions by sharing the latest evidence-based addiction treatment research with scholars and interested others. Dr. Scharff is a board member of the Society for Consciousness Studies and is a member of the American Psychological Association. She is a life-long Girl Scout and in her spare time, Dr. Scharff rides a half-Arabian gelding.
