Facilitated by Linda MacKay PhD: Intimacy, sex and childhood abuse

This series will involve a close analysis of 1 de-identified case example focussing on a particular challenging problem presentation. Presenters will discuss ways they struggled in the case as well as ways they assisted clients in an effective change process.


Case presentation – Presenting issue, process of seeking help, family diagram/genogram.

Assessment – Drawing from Bowen theory the presenter will workshop how a case formulation is developed. What case data is useful for systems hypotheses.

Interventions – How the theory guided assessment shapes the “doing” of therapy. What process facilitates client systems insight? What goes into managing therapist reactivity?

Learning Objectives – These case seminar discussions provide participants with insight into ways that Bowen family systems theory guides the clinical process from:

  • assessment,
  • to the doing of the work,
  • and managing the therapists internal reactivity (to side take or over function).


Seminar participation will assist clinicians’ to see ways to hold onto clear thinking and clinical focus in the face of the most challenging personations.
