The Basic Series - by Murray Bowen, MD
Restored and remastered, this series is the most complete introduction to Bowen theory in our AV media catalog.
The first six DVDs are “chalk-talk” theoretical presentations by Dr. Bowen. Each is equivalent to a one-hour personal lecture. The theoretical concepts are covered on all of the first four DVDs. Disk 5 is a one-hour presentation by Dr. Bowen on the four primary variables which govern the development of symptoms in the nuclear family. Dr. Bowen then illustrates how these mechanisms work in the family, how they are interrelated, and how one may account for the differences in those who develop physical, emotional, or social illnesses. Disk 6 is on the emotional process surrounding death in a family and has been considered one of the series’ most significant tapes. Disk 7 the latest addition to the series. It is an interview between Dr. Bowen and Kathleen Yanks which demonstrates the theoretical implications of emotional cutoff from one’s own family.
