Programs in Bowen Theory is pleased to announce a new service—streaming video of past conferences! Video recordings may now be rented or purchased for the March 2018 conference, Functioning Up: Self Regulation in Families Under Stress.
Daniel V Papero, PhD, and Michael Sullivan, LMSW discuss societal regression and regression in families at this conference that took place in Santa Rosa, CA in May, 2017.
Young adults are at a life stage (20-30 years of age) where they face the tasks of adulthood; separating from their family, gaining the education or experience to enter into employment and self sufficiency, establishing relationships which lead to a partnership later in life, and supporting themselves. Dr. McKnight looked at these questions from the point of view of Bowen family systems theory in which the young person, despite his/her efforts to gain independence, is profoundly affected by the functioning of their original family.
Dr. Papero unpacked what’s understood about the functioning of the brain and the psychology of self-regulation in the context of what it looks like to work on self-regulation in the family.
