This presentation was selected to illustrate how Bowen theory offered a young woman a framework for getting beyond blame and anger to develop a more personal, adult relationship with her mother. The case illustrates the heightened emotional reactivity that is triggered through a nodal event in a family and an individual’s efforts to beome more thoughtful and objective in managing herself in the emotionality. Concepts in Bowen theory such as differentiation of self, triangles, cutoff, and multigenerational process are explored in this case study.
