Envision Counseling Presents
Dr. Jenny Brown, PhD, MSW
Bowen Systems in Clinical Practice:
Four Keys to Positive Clinical Outcomes
The Mountaineers Seattle Program Center
Friday, October 27, 2017
8:30am – 5:00pm
In this fun and engaging program, Dr. Brown transforms Bowen systems theory into a dynamic treatment approach designed to benefit the beginner to advanced clinician.
With differentiation of self as the central principle of therapy, Dr. Jenny Brown presents four essential clinical keys for effective treatment of individuals, couples and families: (1) Assessment of clients’ emotional functioning and the predictable patterns of symptom development; (2) utilization of process questions to reveal and track problem patterns rather than focusing on client content and opinion; (3) collaboration with clients to strengthen levels of maturity; and (4) management of the clinician’s emotional process, and the pull to triangle and overfunction in the therapeutic relationship.
Guided by Bowen systems theory principles, Dr. Jenny Brown applies didactic, roleplay demonstration, and DVD case example to illustrate how to work with a variety of presenting problems. As a result of this training, participants will learn the skills necessary to work with:
- Symptomatic individuals, and relate to their highest level of maturity
- Anxious couples, stuck in the pursuer / distancer pattern
- Parents, to strengthen agency rather than “fix” symptomatic children
Dr. Jenny Brown, is a social worker, clinical supervisor, Director of the Family Systems Institute in New South Wales Australia, and author of, Growing Yourself Up: How To Bring Your Best To All of Life’s Relationships.
