Exploring Emotional and Spiritual Shock Waves


Bowen recommended checking for the “emotional shock wave” in all family histories (Bowen, Family Therapy in Clinical Practice, 326): any human problem or death that becomes the stimulus for physical, emotional, and/or social dysfunctions. Recognizing the relationship of these events is vital knowledge for treatment - yet, difficult to discern as families camouflage their connectedness. This presentation explores understandings of Bowen’s emotional shockwave. Bill presented this seminar at the Tenth Annual Day of Workshops sponsored by the Center for Family Consultation February 2008.
