How to Avoid Getting Voted off the Island – Understanding and Managing Relationship Triangles

ID: 5441WEB

Remember your junior high cafeteria? If you generally artfully navigated through the dozens of relationship challenges, then skip this workshop. However, if those years still conjure up a bewilderingly painful struggle of relationship suffering, then this workshop is for you! Triangles, a Bowen family systems theory concept and Rosetta Stone for understanding those years as well as more recent distressing relationships, are the smallest stable relationship units or building blocks of larger emotional systems. If calm, a two-person unit may be stable, however since it tolerates little tension and calm, it is very difficult to maintain. It is automatic that when dyadic anxiety rises, one or both participants recruit a third into the situation - resulting in a triangle that can contain much more tension than the dyad because the tension can now shift between three relationships.

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 Birth Order Blues – Understanding Sibling Position Strengths, Blind Spots, and Liabilities

ID: 5468WEB

The Bowen family systems theory concept of Sibling Position asserts that people who grow up in the same sibling position in families tend to have important common characteristics. For example, oldest children often gravitate towards leadership positions while youngest children often prefer to be followers. Applied to spousal, partner, and parenting relationships, sibling position often has considerable explanatory power for understanding the challenges and successes that couples and parents experience in their relationship and task negotiations.
