Bowen Theory Made Ridiculously Simple


To print the two page brochure, print one page first and the second page on the reverse side.



This summary is my attempt to share 35 years of Bowen study and thinking in just 2 pages.  I hope you find it helpful as a road map of options when relationships are challenging.

To understand challenging people, review the “Anxiety Binding Mechanisms” column on the inside of the brochure.

To give you ideas of how you can respond, review “Maturity Building Principles” column and the middle column giving forms of “Wise Distance” and so on.

A key resource is the list of tips on Taking an “I” Position.

Wishing you well with the Bowen Theory!
