Clinical Conference: Relationships from Long Ago are Present in Our Modern Families: Are We Really So Modern After All?
April 1, 2021 at 9:30 am – 3:30 pm EDT| $95
Speaker: Carrie E. Collier, PhD, LPC, CRC
What does Bowen family systems theory offer the modern family? The family vitality is motivated by emotions and fear about survival or challenges in relationships. A lot has changed since Bowen observed families at NIMH but the four adaptive mechanisms are still alive in the family emotional system. The family make-up might look like a modern family, but is it really all that different? How does one see the emotional patterns in the family and how useful is it to see this process in self and in others?
A maximum of 5 CEU/CEs are available.
