Advanced Training

The Advanced Training program meets monthly 8 times a year for three hours  of lecture and study in Bowen Theory. There are also 4 opportunities to witness supervised sessions with a Bowen Trained coach. The focus of the Advanced curriculum is clinical, with the goal of embracing family systems theory in the clinical process. The student is expected to apply concepts of Bowen Theory  both personally and professionally. The course is organized so that the student is responsible for his/her own learning through the study of his/her family and reading, as well as having access to clinical situations and examples to develop the specific skills needed to supervise from the theoretical vantage point.  Over time the student is expected to demonstrate the integration of Bowen Theory in personal functioning as well as in clinical practice. The Faculty are individuals knowledgeable in Bowen Theory, who have been clinicians devoted to the use of the theory in their practices, and who strive to apply the theory in their own lives. They will serve as consultants to the students. Individual consultation will be available upon request. 

The student is expected to attend each session and actively participate in each session (seminar) in its entirety. There will also be the opportunity to present clinical cases and organizational systems for consultation.

The tuition is non-refundable. The fee, $800 for 2024-2025 is payable upon acceptance to the course. If the student wishes additional supervision with the consultant, it is the student’s responsibility to arrange the time and fee with the assigned consultant.

The textbook is Family Therapy in Clinical Practice by Murray Bowen. Each student is expected to purchase the books and read the assignments posted on the Curriculum Syllabus. Other recommended references will be in a bibliography distributed as part of the course handouts.
