Challenges in Daily Life
In a period in life when my mother and my in-laws are getting older and sickness is coming, they need help to manage daily life and their illnesses. The question is what kind of help they need? Who is supposed to be that support? Helping my mother and my in-laws is a natural thing, but how much and with what? At what point does me and my siblings helping and caring for our mother, diminishes her own capability to care for herself? A balancing act that can be difficult to walk. Relationship can be modified over time and roles are reallocated, but an increased stress level reveals appearingly emotional patterns in a family. The questions I ask myself are not revolutionary or new, these are questions raised in a stressful time in a family’s daily life, these are challenges in a changing time for a family.

The Bowen Theory is developed by Dr. Murray Bowen, an American psychiatrist and a professor in psychiatry at Georgetown University. The Systems Theory is developed through practical work with clients during several decades. Dr. Bowen analyzed families, congregations, organizations and societies as emotional units. Instead of the individual perspective, focus was set on how relations are built and changed depending on context and various levels of anxiety. Dr. Bowen begun his research during the 1940’s at the Menninger Clinic, Later he continued at the Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA, where he also founded the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family.
