This conference will explore Bowen Theory’s concept of the “emotional system” in the light of current research on emotion and its relevance to family systems theory and psychotherapy.

Upon completion of this training, you will be able to:

  • Define the contrast between “fast” and “slow” thinking (Kahneman).
  • Describe the knowledge of the non-conscious initiation of action before the awareness of a decision to act (Libet).
  • Contrast the constructionist theory of emotion (Barrett) with the classical theory of emotion. 
  • Define “emotion” and how it affects behavior.
  • Define “thought” and its relationship to emotion.
  • Distinguish well-constructed theory from poorly constructed theory.
  • Describe “systems thinking” and why it matters.
  • Describe how a family system works psychologically, behaviorally, and interactively within its surrounding context.
  • Identify how a more “differentiated” family systems differs in behavior from a less “differentiated” family systems.
  • Describe the difference between anxiety, stress, fear, and tension and how they each affect behavior.
  • Identify the components and developmental processes that result in the variability among individuals.
  • Define the problem of “naïve realism” and how it plays a role in bias and influences cognition and behavior.
  • Identify your own bias (psychological reactiveness) and the problem it presents for maintaining contact with objective reality in research, work settings,
  • interpersonal relationships, and family.
  • Describe how Bowen theory fits within science, particularly within the developing science of the human.
