LAHAINA – Sean O’Hara will lead the workshop “Addict Archetype” on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. in the Kamakau Library at Lahainaluna High School.

This workshop is designed to educate and inform attendees on the subject of “Addict Archetype.” He will review C.G. Jung’s functioning conscious and unconscious, including “Self” (unconscious) and “Ego” (conscious).

Additionally, his lecture will include Jung’s most common archetypes and how people project onto them, as well as how modern media, films, music and art are objects for which the archetype is projected onto.

Dr. O’Hara will review the signs of addiction, including process and chemical addiction.

Dr. O’Hara is a licensed psychologist in Southern California and Hawaii with over 30 years of experience with psychiatric, neuropsychological, dual diagnosis, crisis intervention and sports psychology clinical issues.
