This conference brings together internationally acclaimed clinical researchers and practitioners to explore how the family system impacts on symptoms in children. It will combine dynamic presentations on theory, research and clinical approaches to working with symptomatic children and young people and their families. Each day will provide opportunity for optional seminars that focus on clinical cases. 

As always, this 15th Annual Family Systems Institute conference aims to present Bowen systems theory with both depth and accessibility.
