The Family Emotional System: An Integrative Concept for Theory, Science, and Practice presents an ongoing dialogue among scientists, family investigators, and clinicians related to a natural systems view of the family and human behavior that has been occurring over several decades. The concept of the family as an emotional system, as defined in Bowen theory, is presented as the principal integrative concept underlying this dialogue and an effort to move toward a science of human behavior. As a natural system, the family forms the immediate and most important context for individual development, and may be the most central and important environment shaping brain development across the lifetime of the individual. This book explains how the family system can serve as an integrative framework within which specific factual discoveries and hypotheses from many areas of science can be brought together and understood as various manifestations of a coherent whole. The Family Emotional System provides understanding of what is entailed in conceptualizing the family as an emotional system, a sense of the breadth and depth of knowledge the sciences are contributing to this effort, and examples of how this theoretical framework contributes to family research and practice. The richness and excitement occurring in the ongoing dialogue between scientists and Bowen family systems practitioners and researchers is captured along with the promise it holds for the study of human behavior.

This text offers an extensive array of theories, including all the mainstream approaches as well as contemporary ones such as narrative, feminist, and post-modern. The author provides an integrative framework that allows students to assess the various theories with respect to possible clinical application. By comparing and contrasting the theories, as well as analyzing strengths and weaknesses of each, students will learn to apply them more flexibly in practice. The book is divided into four major theoretical forces in psychotherapy and introductory sections are provided to help students place a particular theory within a major theoretical period. The four theoretical forces discussed are: (1) psychoanalytical and psychodynamic; (2) behavioral and cognitive school(s); (3) existentialism and humanism; and (4) social constructivism school of psychotherapy. The author discusses social constructivism and then describes at least five theoretical approaches within this theoretical force--solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, strengths-based therapy, and so on.

The concepts of Murray Bowen, one of the founders of family therapy and the originator of family systems theory, are brought together here in an integrative fashion. Michael Kerr (who worked with Bowen for many years) and Bowen propose that the enormously complex task of evaluating a clinical family can be orderly when it is grounded in family systems theory. Using family diagrams and case studies, the book is devoted to an elegant explication of Bowen theory, which analyzes multigenerational family relationships and conceptualizes the family as an emotional unit or as a network of interlocking relationships, not only among the family members, but also among biological, psychological, and sociological processes. Bowen’s persistent inquiry and devotion to family observation, in spite of obstacles and frustrations, have resulted in a theory that has radically changed our ways of looking at all behavior.
