Two Views of the Ties that Bind 0/3
2015 Bowen Theory Conference: The Ties That Bind - June 25, 2015
Mrs. Kerr gives a detailed description of the differences between Attachment Theory and Bowen Theory in the first two videos. The therapists' attitudes, approaches and goals on child problems differ in many ways between the two mindsets. She then illustrates Bowen's concepts of the reciprocity process between parent and child from Stephen Firer's book "The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia" by looking at the life of Gia in the third video.
