“I discovered that Freudian theory was not the science that Freud thought it would be…I put several years on trying to read the baseline of every discipline that had to do with the human being…(T)he best I found was evolution which went back to the beginning of the universe…So, I set out to change Freudian theory to evolution, and that is when I got into the systems idea…” Murray Bowen, Scientific Thought in the Human Head, Pittsburgh, PA: 1988.

Open to all, it is especially intended for those newer to Bowen theory. As with all science, there may be multiple explanations for the data and multiple reasonable conclusions. Program content has obtained credibility, as demonstrated by the involvement of the broader psychological practice, education, and science communities in studying or applying the findings, procedures, practices, or theoretical concepts.” The goal is that participants will be able to describe: 1) How planet Earth evolved into a habitable setting for life; 2) Systems thinking related to the subsequent evolution of life; and 3) Systems thinking related to the evolution of the human family.
