In Intro to Bowen Theory: Your Questions Answered FSI faculty members Lily Mailler and Jenny Brown engage with questions posed at a live seminar overviewing Bowen’s theory. Many engaging questions were asked by the audience after listening to a lecture from Dr. Bowen where he discussed his 8 concepts: triangles, differentiation of self, nuclear family emotional process, family projection process, multigenerational transmission process, emotional cutoff, sibling position, and societal emotional process. The lecture is available to purchase from The Bowen Center.
In these podcasts, questions are raised and responded to in a conversational mode. Answers are spontaneous rather than prepared.
Episode 5: Research, evidence, and Bowen theory. In this podcast Lily and Jenny discuss Bowen theory and research. Is the theory backed up by research? The challenges of researching a broad systems theory with so many interconnecting variables, Bowen theory’s engagement with the natural sciences, and what does it look like to do personal research into one’s own family?
