Description

May 20, 2017

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

In the morning, Victoria Harrison will review epigenetic research on how reactions to adversity, stress, diet, and other factors influence the functioning of future generations.  She will present what Bowen theory adds for understanding how relationships between family members can modify or magnify the impact of history on resilience and symptoms.   She will illustrate the use of genealogical resources and family research to examine evidence for epigenetic factors and relationships processes that contribute toward rising and falling levels of differentiation over generations in one’s family.  Discussion will focus on the value of this research for understanding one’s own family and functioning and for working on differentiation of self.
The afternoon, from 1:00 – 4:00, will provide time for people to work on their own family diagram and time line, to review progress made and plan next steps to take in family research.
