About Family Matters
Family Matters is a series of half hour TV shows jointly produced by the Bowen Center for the University of the District of Columbia since 2006. The format is a one-on-one interview designed to bring out the best and most in-depth observations from professional people with experience in Bowen family systems theory who have spent their professional lives learning about the issues that matter to families.
