Bowen Theory Monthly Clinical Lectures with Michael Kerr, M.D.

This nine-month program features two-hour monthly sessions of 90-minute streamed webcast lectures by Michael Kerr, M.D., Director Emeritus of the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family. Lectures are designed to explicate Bowen theory concepts and principles. Bowen theory concepts conceptualize the family as a network of interlocking relationships that can be described within a multigenerational framework. The webcasts are designed to illustrate the interplay of Bowen theory and its applications; how Bowen theory guides the thinking of the clinician and their actions.

Immediately following the webcast, a Center for Family Consultation (CFC) faculty member will facilitate a half hour discussion with attendees. The Bowen Theory Monthly Conferences are primarily for the helping professionals. This includes but is not limited to psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, nurses, clergy and others interested in human behavior.

The conference will be held monthly in two Chicago suburban area locations—one at the CFC office in Evanston, and the other in Oakbrook.
