This module refreshes and deepens the student in their understanding of the Bowen Family Systems-Family of Origin’s eight concepts and a basic understanding of the Genogram. The interrelationship of the concepts of these two models as applied to the dynamics of family life can be demonstrated with a 3-generational Genogram on the family of King David (Solomon, David, Children) from the Old Testament.
The student must use critical thinking for integration of the Bowen Model and the Genogram model. This integration requires that the student understands the interrelationship of the eight concepts. Students will learn to apply a systems approach to analysing families, and use this to highlight areas that block as well as possible solutions for growth and development.
