Europe's first International Bowen Conference
We don´t know much about the future. No one could predict that a pandemic would overthrow our plans to conduct a conference in Swedish Lapland these days. It is now postponed to June 14-16, 2021.
Our goal with the conference is to create a meeting place where researchers, professional practitioners, students and general curious from all over the world can share each other's experiences and knowledge about the application of Bowen's theory in families, associations, parishes, authorities and other types of organizations. In addition, it is fantastic to conduct Europe's first international Bowen Conference.
Ahead of next summer's Bowen Conference, we take with us what we learn from this year's pandemic and adapt to the opportunities that the world offers.
We will provide you with continuous information on the situation.
Stay safe and enjoy the summer.
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.
