Presenter: Douglas C. Murphy, MA

This clinical case report is based on a presentation at a Faculty Case Conference in April 1996. Identifying data has been altered to protect confidentiality. The main purpose of the presentation was to discuss a specific outcome of processes in emotional systems; murder/suicide, and its occurrence and ramifications for one family from the perspective of Bowen family systems theory.

The clinical presentation represents a beginning effort with the family. The factual data collected thus far is incomplete and should be considered preliminary. However, the disadvantage of presenting a case with a scarcity of facts was outweighed by the opportunity to formulate ideas and engage in a discussion with faculty members about the manifestation of murder/suicide in family emotional systems.
