Examining Spirituality and Religion: Anxiety Binder or Defining a Self? Using Bowen Theory to Examine the Facts of Spirituality


Through this presentation Bill examines spirituality and religiosity through Bowen Theory and asks are spirituality and religiosity an anxious escape from family togetherness or do they lead to a higher level of differentiation? The presentation  offers individuals the opportunity to explore the “facts” of the broader spiritual and religious systems influencing their family system and ask: how are my multigenerational patterns influenced by the spirituality and religiosity of our ancestors? Bill presented this paper in 2007 at the Center for Family Consultation’s Faculty Theory Day.
