Lunch & Learn: Rethinking Addiction with Dr. Bruce K. Alexander

The Disability Cultural Center is proud to present world-renowned psychology researcher Dr. Bruce K. Alexander, Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Alexander’s pivotal Rat Park studies inspired new ways of thinking about mental health, addiction, recovery, and wellness countering the dominant “medical” or “disease” model. This discussion with Dr. Alexander is open to any faculty or staff seeking to learn more about what addiction is, why it’s so widespread, and how we can think differently about recovery and wellness.
