Clinical Supervision

CFC faculty member, Kelly Matthews-Pluta, MSW, will provide online clinical supervision to family therapists in small groups (no more than 4 participants). The group will meet online monthly via video conferencing available at

This is a six month program from January 2019 through June 2019. Classes will meet on Tuesdays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm Central Time on 1/8, 2/5, 3/5, 4/9, 5/7, and 6/4.

Each small group will be conducted as a Bowen theory Study Group where Family Systems Theory is discussed and applied, using Growing Yourself Up by Jenny Brown. The first 30 minutes of each session will be spent discussing the assigned book chapter, followed by two 45-minute clinical case presentations by participants. Each participant in the study group is expected to present cases at 3 meetings.

The ideal candidate for participating would have some understanding of Bowen Theory. They may have read Bowen material, attended meetings or conferences at Bowen centers, and/or attended a Post Graduate Training Program. The focus of the study group will be greater understanding and clinical application of Bowen theory.


Thank you so much for the online supervision program you provided. Having recently moved out of the Chicago area, I feel lucky you provided this opportunity in a distance format. I gained so much from your expertise and experience in Family Systems Therapy and Thinking! I also appreciate the direction to the many resources you mentioned. You created a comfortable learning environment to match my style of learning. Thank you!
