Emotional Cutoff as a Multigenerational Process
The concept of emotional cutoff was originally developed by Dr. Murray Bowen to describe the emotional process between the generations, or how individuals manage their unresolved emotional attachment to their parents. This process does not begin anew with each generation, as it is influenced by the parents’ degree of cutoff with the previous generation, as well as the emotional cutoff occurring in prior generations. Each generation has the opportunity to lessen the degree of cutoff for themselves and for future generations.
