Since the publication of Generation to Generation: Family Process in Church and Synagogue by Dr. Edwin Friedman, church leaders have recognized the importance of understanding Bowen family systems theory as it relates to congregational systems. Like family systems, congregational systems are impacted by two key factors: the level of anxiety within the system and the level of differentiation of group members. As anxiety levels rise within families, churches, and society as a whole, it becomes imperative that leaders step back occasionally from the fray to assess their own capacity for managing themselves in a calmer, more differentiated way.
This event will be held online via Zoom. All time given on the brochure are Central Time.
