Bowen, Murray The Changing World and Family Therapy1984Georgetown CollectionSociety goes through progressive and regressive cycles similar to those in a family. Society is currently in a regression. Dr. Bowen discusses the history of Family Therapy and psychotherapy and makes some predictions about what the future holds for the mental health professions. Principles based in life itself and not on man's thinking are what is needed for the study of human behavior. Family Systems Theory describes processes in the family rather than the people involved in those processes. It is this that separates it from other theories of human behavior. The more a principle can be based on science and theory, the more solid it is for the ages.Societal regression, Family Systems Therapy 59 min DVD and VHSCOPYRIGHT: (c) Georgetown Family Center, 1984.
