The Bowen/Kerr Interview Series

In this series, Dr. Murray Bowen is interviewed by Dr. Michael Kerr, who became the Director of the Family Center at the time of Dr. Bowen’s death in October 1990. In the interviews, Dr. Bowen and Dr. Kerr discuss the concepts of family systems theory and therapy. The Bowen-Kerr Interview Series is designed to address those aspects of the theory which people have the most difficulty understanding. For this reason some knowledge of theory is desirable before using these tapes.
