Coming to grips with Bowen Family Systems Theory in a collaborative learning environment.
March 1, 2018 0 comments

Scholars from the FSI present some of their research and efforts to differentiate within their broader multigenerational family. Followed by Dan Papero video presentation on his work to define himself in his family of Origin – a conference video recording.


Chronic Anxiety and the Collapse of Time

Speaker: Lauren Errington – Mental Health Social Worker and Family Therapist



Lauren’s presentation will reflect on the way the development of a mature self in her own family of origin has reduced the degree to which chronic anxiety pulls anxieties about threats to togetherness from the past and the future in a way that makes it difficult to be present and engaged in the present moment.

Lauren is currently in transit from Scotland to Australia where she will be moving to Canberra – an optimal 300km distance from her family of origin, according to Bowen!


Getting Deeper into Managing ‘Self’ Better


Speaker: Veronica Peters – Psychologist and Family Therapist

Veronica’s presentation examines what we can learn from Bowen family systems theory to understand the adaptive processes that organise our functioning in relationships, workplaces and in the face of life struggles with and without working at managing ourselves with self-soothing and self-regulating.

Veronica’s interest in Bowen theory has been to provide her with a deeper understanding of human functioning within workplaces, congregations, and the societal process, as well as working clinically with people who are struggling with mental health issues and relationship issues.


Exploring Relationship Sensitivities


Speaker: Anna Moss – Social Worker and Women’s Pastor

Anna’s presentation will explore the concept of relationship sensitivities, both in her own life, family of origin and in the therapeutic context. She will present some exploratory questions which she has found useful in clarifying her own sensitivities as well as the sensitivities of people with whom she works.

Anna also has a degree in Law and previously worked as a School Counsellor, specialising in work with adolescents and families. She has post-graduate qualifications in Theology from Sydney Missionary and Bible College.
