Videos, Bypassing the Nuclear Family

During the mid-1960's, Dr. Bowen discovered that conflicts in nuclear families became much milder for those who worked to define a self within his or her family of origin, thus "bypassing the nuclear family." In this video, Dr. Bowen explains how his focus on the family of origin is "the whole basis of the therapy at the family center…" The Murray Bowen Archives Project thanks The Bowen Center for the Study of the Family for making this video available to you. The complete clinical tape "Bypassing the Nuclear Family" is available for rent or purchase on the Bowen Center website. Click here for more information.
