Feature Articles from the Family Center Report 1979-1996

Bowen Theory and Practice features a diverse collection of articles on aspects of Bowen theory and its applications in clinical practice that were first published in the Family Center Report. Included in the book are articles on natural selection theory, the family as an emotional unit, population density, as well as a systems model for understanding disease, family diagnosis, and emotional process in society. Feature articles are written by Drs. Murray Bowen, Michael Kerr, and Daniel Papero. Other faculty members contributed detailed reviews of annual conferences and invited lectures. The work of Dr. Walter Toman and Dr. Jack Calhoun are also represented here. By publishing these articles, the goal is to give them the wider exposure they merit and to make them available for the future.
