As wars, migrations, natural disaster, pestilence, misfortune, crime and violence appear across the world and in specific localities, human populations suffer. A small percentage of those exposed retain the effects of that adversity deeply embedded in their physiology and in their capacity for competently leading their lives.
They have become traumatized.
Can the Bowen theory and systems thinking contribute to the understanding of the factors leading to variability in outcome in populations exposed to adversity? One pathway may lie in the development of the concept of chronic anxiety in the family.
Could the degree of chronic anxiety in a family system, reflected in certain behavioral, psychological, and emotional mechanisms (family emotional process) shape the ground from which individual vulnerability emerges?
How would a family systems perspective shape the role of the helper responding to the challenge of severe adversity and stress for an individual and for a family?
The conference will address these and other questions relating to the etiology and treatment of the effects of severe stress in the family system.
Four, 90-minute presentations with ample discussion time:
From PTSD and DESNOS to Chronic Anxiety

To introduce and discuss the concept of the chronically anxious family and its relationship to the idea of trauma
To introduce and discuss theoretical and practical considerations in the treatment of the chronically anxious family in the framework of the treatment of trauma
