Adapting Families: Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Success
featuring DANIEL V. PAPERO, PH.D.

Virtually all psychotherapy addresses the adaptive effort of people under the pressure of change and challenge. The Bowen theory and the clinical effort based on it provide both the clinician and family members a way to think about their efforts to adapt individually, and as a family system, to change.

At this year’s Annual Fall Conference on Bowen theory and psychotherapy, renowned family therapist, Daniel Papero, Ph.D., will present his latest thinking on Bowen theory and the family. Dr. Papero has recently developed a new systems model for the assessment of families. The model provides an invaluable tool for both clinicians and families.

Dr. Papero lectures both nationally and internationally on Bowen theory and is on the faculty of the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family in Washington, D.C. He is the author of the book Bowen Family Systems Theory and co-editor of the recently published book, The Family Emotional System: An Integrative Concept for Theory, Science, and Practice (2015). His publications also include numerous book chapters and journal articles. He maintains clinical and consultation practice in Washington.

Since 1991 Dr. Daniel Papero has been the guest lecturer at the Center for Family Consultation’s annual Fall Conference. Each year Dr. Papero lectures on a topic central to Bowen theory and its clinical application. In addition to his lectures, he presents videotaped clinical sessions which illustrate important challenges individuals and their families seek to resolve. The sessions illustrate both the clinical application of the theory as well as the effort of individuals to define self in the broader context of the family.
