52. Dr. Todd Bowman – Alcohol? Brain Implications, Drivers, Nuances, and Recovery – Part 2




Welcome to Episode #52 (Episode #2 of our 2021 season) of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. Today’s conversation is with Dr. Todd Bowman, a psychologist, neuroscientist, and amazing human being. He is the Associate Professor of Counseling at Indiana Wesleyan University. He is an Adjunct Professor for Human Sexuality at Nazarene Theological Seminary. He is an Adjunct Professor of the Intro to Psychology at Nazarene Bible College. And, he is the author and editor of Reclaiming Sexual Wholeness.


In today’s episode we continue a conversation around alcohol, its implications on the brain, its drivers, and its nuances. Our discussion is about health, rather than moralizing the behaviors associated with alcohol. We talk about dependency on alcohol, stress management, and where life is “off” unless alcohol is involved. We share how all addictions are behaviors rooted in relationship attachment disorders. We look at required components of recovery. Alcohol dependency is expressed in the body, brain, mind, and even elsewhere. When you know why you do what you do, you can more easily reprogram yourself for power to choose health over compulsion. Driven leaders ought to know what they are driven by.


This episode is part 2 of a 2-part series. Part 1 is a helpful resource to give context to this episode.
