Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! Balancing Individuality & Togetherness in Key Relationships

ID: 5465WEB

Bowen family systems theory postulates that among the biologically-rooted drives within an organism, there are competing forces for individuality and togetherness. It is these forces that govern emotional transactions in all relationships. These counterbalancing life forces shift the locus of control for behavior from the individual to the emotional system. What transpires in the emotional system impacts the interplay of feeling and thinking in the individual which has a direct effect on his or her relationships. Increased chronic anxiety can result in an individuals' feelings overwhelming their intellectual system which leads to a drive for togetherness overwhelming their individuality in that emotional system. This workshop demonstrates how understanding the effects of chronic anxiety on individuality-togetherness balances can enhance one's functioning in various emotional systems.

Termination of Pregnancy for Medical Reasons: A Unique Grief

ID: 5123WEB

Terminating a pregnancy due to fetal anomaly (TOPFA) during or after the second trimester of pregnancy may present as both an immediate and existential crisis for expectant parents. This presentation explores the unique bereavement of people who TOPFA as compared with other perinatal losses and provides an introduction to the population itself and the unique factors leading them to seek therapy. While TOPFA has been explored in qualitative research, there are few practice-based articles addressing both the nuts and bolts of therapeutic intervention as well as how to approach people’s attempts to grieve and mourn this loss. Successful, sensitive, and informed therapeutic interventions rooted in theoretical perspectives including continuing bonds and ambiguous loss may result in making meaning from their grief.

This presentation will apply theory to practice by introducing a model in which to conduct therapy entitled ACCEPT, and illustrate the intervention through the experience of a composite patient. In the future, a Part 2 webinar will be provided to explore the DOUBLE RAINBOW approach to clients who are subsequently pregnant after TOPFA.
