Monthly 2.5-hour Zoom seminar for clinicians to present challenging cases or research projects based upon their practice of Bowen family systems psychotherapy.
Assigned reading in Family Therapy in Clinical Practice by Murray Bowen will highlight guidelines for therapists to discuss or illustrate. The Family Diagram and Family Research as Tools for Differentiation of Self by Victoria Harrison will be a springboard for discussing the challenges of practice based on extended family work as central for differentiation of self.
Presentations will be made to the faculty person while others observe and collect their thoughts and questions. Discussion will be open to others and then concluded by the faculty person. Two or three participants will present each session. Participants can plan to present every other month. There will be a stretch break in the middle of the seminar.
Participants will prepare a family diagram to accompany the presentation. Privacy and confidentiality will be maintained. No names or identifying information will be used. Participants will be responsible for obtaining a signed release if necessary.
The Online Clinical Consultation Seminar is designed for therapists who have attended the Bowen Center Postgraduate Program or a regional training program, who have participated in coaching for their own family work and who have an active clinical practice. Up to 6 participants.
2.5 hours once a month online via Zoom from September 2020 – December 2020 and January 2021 – June 2021. The exact day and time will be determined by participants who will likely be in a variety of time zones.
