Conference on Bowen Family Systems Theory and Its Applications - June 28 & 29, 2012
Dr. Murray Bowen sees the family as an emotional unit that is composed of emotional and relationships systems. Emotionality is the force that motivates these systems and the relationship patterns is the way of how the emotions are expressed. The two-person marital relationship is in essence a segment of a larger emotional field that embraces the nuclear and extended family as well as the broader society. Any variables that affect these emotional fields will affect the marital couple as well. The stability of the marital relationship in turn depends on the stability of these broader emotional fields. When there is instability within the marital couple or in the broader emotional field, triangling will appear.
