Letters To My Father: A Bowen Family Systems Theory Conference about the Importance of Family Research for Strength and Resilience.
Center for the Study of Natural Systems and the Family presents this one-day virtual and in-person conference.
Purpose: CSNSF has designed this program to advance the study of Bowen family systems theory through the exploration of one woman’s effort to learn more about her Jewish ancestry. Kathleen Balgley has recorded her journey in her memoir, “Letters to My Father, Excavating a Jewish Identity in Poland and Belarus”. Bowen theory provides a scientific basis for understanding the benefits of this type of effort while Kathleen presents a multitude of examples of overcoming the challenges involved.
For Whom: Students of Bowen theory with or without advanced training and individuals interested in the benefits of the family of origin research.
