In humans some genes function differently depending on the other genes. Is there something specifically different in humans?

Dr. Edwin H. Friedman Reinventing Leadership1996Guest Lecture SeriesThis video demonstrates how our ability to lead is related more to the nature of our presence than to technique or know-how. Anxious societies are characterized by 1) a high level of reactivity; 2) herding; 3) blame; and 4) a quick fix mentality. Barriers to effective leadership are discussed along with those qualities in leaders that consultants should look for and support. Among these are vision, uncommon persistence, stamina and self regulation in the face of sabotage. A discussion guide accompanying this tape contains much useful information not contained in the tape itself.Leadership in anxious organizations42 MinVHS COPYRIGHT: (c) Guilford Publications, Inc., 1996
The Changing World and Family Therapy42
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.
