Emotional Process in Society - How it Promotes Regressive and Progressive Periods and its Influence on Families

ID: 5469WEB

Societal Emotional Process, a Bowen concept, describes how both progressive and regressive periods in societies are strongly influenced by an emotional system operating on a societal level. During regressive periods societies and their leaders tend to take easy ways out for addressing challenging issues and it is not until the pain associated with these short-term strategies begins to exceed the pain associated with acting on long-term views that societies emerge into progressive periods. This webinar will explore the challenges for families as parents attempt to raise children in periods of societal regression compared to raising children in more progressive periods.

Getting Beyond Blaming Self or Others - Becoming Factual about 500 Pound Gorilla Multigenerational Patterns

We will see that these patterns have histories and influence that transcend that of any one family member - thereby promoting a more objective understanding of these behavioral patterns, family members, and the parts of the that self-play a role in creating and perpetuating them.

The Co-Creation of "Squeaky Wheel" Kids & Developing Reality-Based Relationships with our Children

ID: 5442WEB

A child's degree of relationship dependence is a product of forces that promote and undermine that child's emotional separation from the family. According to Bowen family systems theory, when parent and child functioning promotes emotional separation, the emotional maturity level is maintained between generations. When their functioning undermines separation, parental generation immaturity is transmitted to the next generation. Family Projection Process, a Bowen theory concept, describes how parents instill part of their immaturity into children. Typically the parent becomes less anxious by focusing on one or more of their children. Their partner, sensitive to the caregivers' anxiety, supports their involvement with these children. Projection process steps are explored where a parent: (1) focuses on a child fearing something is wrong with that child; (2) interprets the child's behavior as confirming that fear; and (3) treats the child as if something is really wrong with that child.

Wherever I Go, There I am (Eventually): Repercussions of Escaping an "Impossible" Family

ID: 5466WEB

Emotional cutoff, a Bowen family systems theory concept, describes how unresolved emotional issues with parents, siblings, and other family members are managed by reducing or totally cutting off emotional contact with them - moving away and rarely going home or by staying in physical contact but avoiding sensitive issues. Covering cutoff origins and consequences, this workshop also explores how bridging cutoffs provides a path out of recreating the past in the present nuclear family while reducing anxiety and improving personal and relationship functioning.
