An Important Precursor to Alcoholics Anonymous

The Dublin Group was one of the original inspirations for the 12 step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. 

Although the Dublin Group preceded Alcoholics Anonymous, the Dublin Group site makes numerous references now to Alcoholics Anonymous and the wisdom of the 12 steps. This site chronicles some of the rich history of A.A. as well as providing some unique background, such as the harmony between the psychology of William James and the 12 steps of recovery.

The Dublin Group has some interesting and rather thorough Power Point presentations about the synergy between the psychology of the famous philosopher and psychologist William James and the 12 step program.
