This site provides a beginning road map to theory as a guide to understanding and perhaps changing one’s life.

In the early 1950’s Dr. Murray Bowen, a psychiatrist, developed Family Systems Theory as an outgrowth of his research at the National Institutes of Health.

I am one of the “second generation family researchers” who has benefited from his ideas. This site contains my ideas and or my interpertation of Bowen theory.

I met Dr.Bowen in 1976 and benefited enormously from his ideas. Now its pay back time.
Therefore, I offer you my ideas. Hopefully I have present them in an entertaining and common sense way.
