The WPFC Distance Learning Course is designed for learners outside the Pittsburgh area who want to study Bowen Family Systems Theory one-on-one with a faculty mentor. The learner and mentor maintain contact via e-mail and phone (or through an on-line video call service such as Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts). The course of study lasts about eight months, with scheduled monthly phone (or video call) meetings. These interactions are centered around suggested readings, application exercises, and written reflections. Distance learners must have access to a phone with long distance service or a device with video call capabilities, as well as a computer with word processing and e-mail capabilities.
Registration: Prospective students will complete an application form that can be requested by contacting the WPFC offices via email [email protected] or by phone 412-362-2295. The course fee includes a free copy of Bowen Family Systems Theory: A Workbook for Learning and Application.
NOTE: Learners who would like to work at a distance with a small group may be interested in the Online Introduction to Bowen Theory and Its Applications offered by the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family.
