Video: Christopher Kennedy Lawford Presentation: The Journey

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

All people in recovery have the story of their journey. Christopher shares his with us and demonstrates that addiction does not discriminate between wealth and poverty, addiction is classless and ravages you in just the same way even when you are priviliged and wealthy. You can be the nephew of the most powerful man on the planet and it will still come and get you. When it does the personal cost is similar.

Christopher holds a Bachelor of Arts from Tufts University, a Juris Doctor from Boston College Law School and a Masters Certification in Clinical Psychology from Harvard Medical School. Christopher is the son of actor Peter Lawford and Patricia “Pat” Kennedy. He is a nephew of John F. Kennedy, and cousin-in-law of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Christopher’s journey is told with great passion and humility along with humour, and it’s the kind of anecdote that only comes with being a Kennedy – not everyone was taught to do the twist by Marilyn Monroe. An incredible story that’s not to be missed!
