Family Matters Video Series On-line discussion Group
Managing Self and Unexpected Life Cycle Events
Jul 21, 2021 (Wed) 7:00 -8:30 pm
Family Matters is a joint production of the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family and the University of the District of Columbia. Program host, Dr. Mariana Martinez and Bowen faculty member Ms. Priscilla Friesen explore why some families have more difficulty than others in their progression through life cycle; what makes one family different from the other in their capacity to navigate unexpected occurrences; how a family can stay on track, despite difficult circumstances; and the process of recovery from painful life events.
Ms. Priscilla Fraisen was introduced to the ideas of Murray Bowen in graduate school in social work at the University of Kansas. She moved from Kansas to Washington, DC in l978 to pursue her interest. She became an administrative assistant in the Biofeedback Program and participated in the postgraduate training program. Her early exposure to biofeedback has significantly influenced her understanding of Bowen theory and her focus on the physiology of relationships. She was appointed to the faculty in 1987. She was director of the Postgraduate Program in Bowen Family Systems Theory and its Applications from 1990-2003. Since 1994, she has been working with neurofeedback, an expansion of biofeedback that includes brain waves. This has led her into the study of evolution and development of the brain as well as how the body/mind/relationships operate in synchrony. Ms. Friesen presents in this area of knowledge in the training programs at the Family Center as well as around the country and abroad.
