Are "Squeaky Wheel" Children a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy? The Challenge of Developing Reality-Based Relationship 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.

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

ID: 5467WEB

This webinar explores the Multigenerational Transmission Process, a Bowen family systems theory concept and how understanding the facts of a family across generations is a means of identifying persistent behavior 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.

Helicopter Parenting while in Perpetual Conflict with an Underfunctioning Co-pilot . .. A Love Story-WEB

ID: 5440WEB

The Bowen family systems theory concept Nuclear Family Emotional Process describes the basic patterns of emotional functioning among and between members of two successive generations of a family - most often between partners and between the partners and their offspring. These basic patterns result in chronic anxiety. Family tensions come to rest in certain parts of the family such that the more anxiety one nuclear family or relationship absorbs, the less other family members or relationships must absorb. This workshop will explore how at sufficient levels of anxiety intensity, each pattern contributes to the development of one of three categories of clinical dysfunction in a nuclear family: (1) illness in a spouse; (2) marital conflict; and (3) impairment of one or more children.

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

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.

Run for the Hills, It's Alive! The Personal and Practice Implication of the Family as a Living Emotional System

ID: 5463WEB

Bowen family systems theory postulates that the family is a living emotional system where the behavior of each family member both simultaneously contributes to and reflects what is occurring in the family as a whole. This webinar considers a few of the profound personal and practice implications resulting from this perspective, specifically that: 1) people have less autonomy in their functioning than is commonly thought, 2) every family member's functioning contributes to medical, psychiatric, or social symptoms in another family member, and 3) treatment need not be directed at the symptomatic family member.

The Road to Emotional Maturity has No Fast Lane: Towards Becoming a More Inner-Directed Self-WEB

ID: 5464WEB

Most people want their decision-making and day-to-day behavior guided by a conscious set of well thought-out stances or principles. Perplexed by their own limitations in executing such thoughtful behavior, they find it harder still when they are anxious. Differentiation of Self, a cornerstone concept in Bowen family systems theory, explains these difficulties in terms of the degrees to which people are able to achieve emotional separation from their families-of-origin. This workshop considers the cognitive, emotional, and relationship variables that contribute to a person's basic levels of Differentiation of Self, as well as explores some of the essential elements needed in any concerted effort to increase one's basic level of self later in life.

When a Student Refuses to Go to School: A Structural Family Therapy Approach

ID: 5830WEB

COVID-19 has exposed the gaps (and the unrealistic expectations of schools) in the schools’ approach to mental health. Schools and parents must take a different approach to interacting with students who resist leaving home or getting out of the car to attend in-person school. Without appropriate planning and coordination within schools and families, school administration and CST can unintentionally make it more difficult for the student/family as they navigate the return to in-person school during/after COVID-19.

The webinar will examine the evolution of school involvement in this issue and how both family and school interventions can impact the return of school-avoidant students. Guided by the principles of Structural Family Therapy, the webinar will examine the communication patterns in families and schools while interacting with a student at home or in the school parking lot.

The webinar will address a shift from an individual/student focus to a systemic strength-based therapy that can help schools, families, and students transition to a successful fall semester.

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.
