The Western Pennsylvania Family Center (WPFC) is a non-profit educational and training organization [501(c)(3)] founded in September, 1985 for the purpose of advancing Bowen family systems theory and it’s emphasis on responsible individual functioning. This goal is based in Bowen family systems theory, which is taught through workshops, lectures, and conferences, formal training and education in Bowen theory, and coaching and consultation services for individuals, groups, and organizations.
WPFC Course and Event Fees have been increased a minimum of 10% beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year. This is the first increase in more than 5 years.
WPFC Membership: The generous contributions by individuals and organizations to Western Pennsylvania Family Center have been a vital source of financial support for the many education and training opportunities we have offered since we began in 1985.
